0. Custom Calligraphy from Timbuktu's last Master Calligrapher
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.
