An Ode to Childhood
“I spent most of my afternoons in Sekamaneng, getting up to childish mischief with my brother. On occasion, we would steal glimpses of the female initiates at a neighbor’s house dancing. I remember being awe-struck, seeing them gather in a circle, wearing these intricately beaded veils.
The design of the Phetoho Rug is inspired by those veils, and the name is inspired by the change that the female initiates go through. But in a sense, this rug is an ode to my childhood.”
