Tribes & Cultures

People, their cultures and traditions have always fascinated me and I have a bit of a passion for all things tribal – the textiles, jewellery, dance, beliefs and rituals. On my travels I’ve met some wonderful people from many different tribes and cultures and their diversity is just incredible.
