Pa and Barrie are the chattiest of our collaborators. Both originate from the Kambia region and have seen a lot of life in Sierra Leone.
Pa runs a beautiful stall at the Big Market in Freetown, where he sells his self- designed bags. While discussing business with Po, Barry turned up and voiced his interest. We have been collaborating ever since and they are branching out to experiment with colourful crown-like hats and collar pieces for children.
Thanks to Pa and Barry we have learnt so much about the country, ranging from specifics on the regional variety of raw materials available in Sierra Leone to the political upheavals of recent decades.
