Boubacar Sadeck is considered to be Timbuktu's last master calligrapher. After the 2012 occupation of Timbuktu by jihadists and other armed groups, Boubacar fled to Bamako. He is currently training a group of young apprentices who he hopes will be able to continue this ancient craft. 

We have teamed up with Boubacar to offer custom calligraphy pieces. These are one of a kind items that showcase one of northern Mali's dying arts. 

At the moment, he is doing full page (A4) pieces based on a name or a word. Every piece is made to order and completely unique. At the moment the messages are limited to 12 characters. Shipping is free.
