Malene B: carpets & interior decorating inspired by Africa



Malene Barnett
's custom handmade carpets are inspired by her international travels, love of all things cultural and her African-Caribbean heritage. Above are pieces from her signature collection, Wolof – inspired by traditional Wolof fashion and, Timbuktu – inspired by ancient mud architecture of Mali.
