Fresh out of Chicago, I met Bijal at the Gift Market in January and just haven’t been able to stop thinking about her work.
Botene’ is a boutique of love for different cultures, colors, print and style.” tene’ ” pronounced “tanAY” means “love” in an african dialect. I always wanted to combine my love for fabrics, texture, colors and prints to open a “Bo”utique. And thus was born ” botene’ “.
I’m super excited to share her work with Bloomington at Gathering, August 24th.
