Since antiquity, the sparrow has been viewed as a harbinger of good news and an omen of fortuitous circumstances to come in the near future. A flock of these winged messengers flits across this dappled pillow, bringing their positive energy and joy to your home. Drawing inspiration from her Ugandan-American heritage, entrepreneur Nasozi Kakembo works to bring Africa's vibrant textile design tradition to the rest of the world. Designed in Senegal by a young artist named Claude Gomis, who saw the bird's good tidings taking the form of freedom. Decades after its creation, the popular textile began to take on other meanings, including the "transience of riches" in Ghana. Each thought-provoking pillow is manufactured in Brooklyn, New York, from textiles designed and printed in West Africa.
