kuba cloth inspiration

i have been sketching for our fall collection, and thinking a lot about my "jackie in india" theme, but as always my research takes me to new design lands that are too wonderful to ignore. this weekend's treasure would have to be my rediscovery of african kuba cloths. Matisse used these fabrics in many of his wonderfully pattern rich paintings, and i believe they help contribute to their forever looking modern and fresh. for some reason strong geometry does it every time.
