A story that comes from the past and takes place in the present thanks to a journey made up of memories and emotions, of sharing and hope. A story that starts with women and ends with women. With a single element in common: the Turban.
The initiative with the “B-B Turban” in the starring role reflects a profound sharing of intentions between the Embassy of Benin in Italy and the Italian designer Laura Strambi: the aim is to support women from the Beninese textile supply chain with concrete action, giving them back their place in the construction of the international textile supply chain by creating a collection of Turbans.
The commitment is to bring to light the story of the brave women of Benin and of slavery in general, to open our eyes to the forgotten West African country which, even beyond the second half of the nineteenth century, witnessed the deportation of men and women to America, Brazil and the Caribbean more than any other nation in the world. A painful phenomenon amplified, paradoxically, by the technical ability of this people to work cotton.
The Turban, symbol of the liberation and redemption of Beninese women from slavery, is at the heart of the project from the Embassy of Benin in Italy and the Italian designer Laura Strambi: it is a sign of social solidarity, of responsible sharing, of the evolution of the female identity. Inspired by traditional handmade female Beninese headdresses, today it can be worn by women all over the world as a sign of emancipation and elegance.
Follow me to see others portraits of ordinary women wearing the “B-B Turban” in a glamourous and elegant manner.
