Textiles from around the world - Africa

Lately I've been admiring traditional textiles from around the world that have been popping up in stores, so I'm going to share some here, starting with Africa. {top photos by Brooke McKean of Senegalese women}

Do these ottomans and chairs look familiar? How about after you look at these ottomans at Anthropologie? I guess someone at Anthro visited the M'Afrique by Moroso show, which showcased modern furniture created using traditional African fabrics and weaving.
