My wife and I live in West Africa, where all my books are set. I am involved in Fulani radio programming (and of course writing), and my wife Charlie runs an innovative craft label called SAHEL Design. She is passionate about fashion, poverty relief, and the preservation of ancient skills and family businesses.
Check out this video we made yesterday, which evokes the ancient heritage of every SAHEL Design bag. The voice over is by our friend Hassan Sanga, who is a griot. That means he is able to recite the ancestors of his town’s chief, going back hundreds of years.
