SOMETHING GOOD BLANKET: KARABO POPPY MOLETSANE
A collaboration between Zydia Botes, textile designer, and artist, Karabo Poppy Moletsane, entitled, 'Millenial', this is one of six designs in a limited series of 100% cotton jacquard machine knotted blankets with women artists.
Illustrator, graphic designer and street artist Karabo Poppy Moletsane says she is committed to preserving the African aesthetic. Most of her work is representative and inspired by everyday South African culture specifically in the inner city – from the people that make up the city, to the fashion and other elements like sounds and energy. She also enjoys referencing 90s Hiphop culture – something she says was always around her, growing up with four older brothers.
Karabo was invited by the University of California to paint a mural in the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive in 2017, and designed the google doodle fro Women's Day in 2018.
