RESUME for "YOUR NAME HERE" (your fone: 555-292-1110) TO ATTRACT FUNDERS for an IMPORT BIZ
DEAR FOLKLORICO DRESS CORP: I would be willing to be a DRESS-WORKSHOP FACILITATOR IN THE FASHION INDUSTRY stationed in the THIRD WORLD. I will run your workshop abroad, ideally in Africa where my skin color allows me live safely. I will set up a business there setting up a group of seamstresses to EXPORT artisanry, textiles and finished dresses and pillow covers, table cloths, bedspreads.
I WOULD BE VISITING THE ASHANTI, KENTE, or MALI TRIBES
Because I am African American, I aspire to travel to AFRICA working for a fashion or decor house to set up workshops. I aspire to enter a country where there is civil war, famine and refugees and make hundreds of starving villagers happy; getting their looms started again, buying their cotton stuff, like this MALI BLUE and the Picasso type prints above. I know I can bring home to any American business that hires me, extremely beautiful artworks in the textile and garment line and you will make l00 times what you paid for me to travel to Africa and start these ateliers..
PLUS I can shoot a documentary on SETTING UP AFRICAN ATELIERS and do post editing back in America, maybe send you the video tapes fresh off the fire, and we can make extra cash, up in the six figures, to FUND MORE ATELIERS, by getting DISCOVER Channel to show it. WOuldn't that make a million dollars extra? But that part of the 'business' we do as a State incorporated philanthropic charity so you get a total tax break on it. We can take the money back to AFRICA as the bicycle wheel foot pedal turned water irrigation system featured in NEW HEROES PBS TV series which Redford narrated. You can see it at YOU TUBE. That is the TV SERIES that inspired my vision originally. The BICYCLE PUMP allows Villagers to bring water from a river to the crops by hose, not bucket. Riding a stationery bike pumps it. 80$ but nobody there has that kind of money. We WILL.
I am also inspired by famed import/exporter and very tasteful Atlanta dealer/ collector MUSEUM LEVEL gallery owner Marla Mallett and her website (her Atlanta store is a virtual museum,) and the website has many pictures of the textile art that she collected. A 4x6 weaving brings a thousand dollars. http://www.marlamallett.com
To understand the entire region, the esthetic traditions, google search term "african textile" --most are at PINTEREST and I cannot save them, you have to be a member. Here is ONE that isn't PINTEREST
A SIDELINE would be MUSEUM LEVEL SINGLE PIECE TEXTILES. ASHANTI fabric is worth a thousand dollars a 4 x 6 long piece in Atlanta Georgia, USA.
READ UP ON THE MALI villages.
Read up on KENTE CLOTH
featured in this art exhibit, above.
Lovely photos of fab stuff on exhibit in a gallery
These are valuable items and be glad folks are beginning to know it!
Check a page at Adire Textiles which tells HOW they are woven:
AND MORRISSEY FABRIC DOES BEST INDIGO for JACKETS SEE:
Doesn't this appeal to you as a business/ charity both? BIZ is bucks in USA, CHARITY is all those weavers, dyers, craftsmen, tailors paid double salary in AFRICA. I would run your ateliers, set them up all over Africa, suggest starting in ETHIOPIA, a fairly peaceful country. We can buy the famous cheap cotton fabrics in any country of Africa. SENEGAL has the COTTON BROCADE that is more expensive, which their men wear as a KAFTAN. Other countries have printed, wild FLORID PRINTS on their textiles. We can buy in the largest lengths available, use them to create frocks/ dresses/ sportswear/ mens' sports shirts or JACKETS or sell fabric just as it is, by the yard.
I hope that I can move around Africa, locate dressmaking artisans people who already do their dressmaking work. One artist whose work I found online at one of these sites uses the FINEST PLAIN, unprinted KIMONA silk which he buys in JAPAN. AND HAS it printed by Africans and then made into styles that favor primitive prints. ONLINE. I just found a cheap THAI business that copies the KIMONO shape, using THAI FABRIC and they make them very cheaply but they still are gorgeous dresses. PRINTED KIMONO silk is so very costly, there's no way you could buy the real thing and make inexpensive dresses, but look at this copy ======>. Women would buy this thing like crazy for at home entertaining. The INDIANS make block printed cotton bedspreads for almost no cash which are fabulous fabric, cotton that's printed, charming, folklorico and CHEAP. So my second choice for a land to cover is INDIA.
If I travel to AFRICA, I would also BUY TRIBAL MASKS. PACK THEM BETWEEN THE LAYERS OF FABRIC. Carefully PLASTIC WRAP the MASKS as they WILL definitely soil the fabric. TO SEE what MASKS GO FOR, $225 to 1,000 dollars usually, see this MASK WEBSITE.
MARLA MALLETT dot com has prices for her INDIAN TEXTILES in DOLLARS. She sells out of a shop in Atlanta Georgia -- Check it out. THE PRICES for the fabrics from INDIA, the cotton purses, etc.
Chitin Embroidered Bag. Gujarat,
India. 25"x 36"
Embroidered Gujarat Toran. India.
Tie-Dye Shawl with Silver Embroidery.
India. 67"x 68½"
Pashtun Tray Cover. Ghazni area,
Katawaz. Afghanistan. 22"x 27½"
The fact that Marlett Inc. can sell folk art at these prices tells me that beside offering a standard ladies dress line, one could have a second high end FOLK ART AND HOME ACCESSORY line that you would WHOLESALE TO Galleries, finer department stores, Neimans, Saks & Bloomies. I would supply those designs/articles in every shipment. So I'd be your man in Havana. Your one woman army until such time as profits enable you to clone one agent like me to many villages in Africa. Central America. Asia.
Signed, your name here, Designer/ ARTIST, BUSINESSWOMAN.
