This pattern was originally a painting titled Grid and it was inspired by the ancient textile technique called Bogolan fini done by the Bambara people. The Bambara people primarily live in Mali but they are also in Guinea, Burkina Faso, and Senegal. The artwork was then scanned and slightly edited to achieve the best reproduction quality, then converted into a repeating pattern. Please note that the pattern placement may vary slightly due to large scale repeat.
