Well, she has done it again. Building on the enormous success of The North South Project, Patty Johnson has taken a similar philosophy and design strategy to the Caribbean. The amazing collection is made up of pieces by Big Daddy Craft and Leather (Jamaica), The Caribbean Collective (Dominica), Kalinago Commuinty (Dominica), Luna Design (Barbados), Femmes en Democratie (Haiti), Nanny of the Maroons Traditional Craft (Jamaica) and Navazoe (Barbados). Like North South, this project “draws together aritisian skills and contemporary design to create products collection that reveal how local and regional efforts can bring balance to the often lopsided free flows of globalization”. Beautiful and content rich, this is design at its best!
