Design One: Lesotho

Design Two: Basotho

I’m a sucker for a thatched roof, so my “Tiny Dwelling” designs zero in on the rondavels–one room, circular huts with conical, thatched roofs–of the Basotho people of Lesotho, South Africa.  Some of the huts are painted with bright colors, some are etched, some are simple, doorless, rock structures.  The landscape is alpine with amazing foliage, like agave the size of trees.  The images were based in part on the beautiful photographs of Di Jones from the Malealea Lodge and Pony Trek Center in Lesotho.  I’m ready to visit!

    I love these village-scapes! The scenes are simple and yet there is a lot going on. I could just sit and look at these fabrics for hours and imagine all sorts of stories about the goings-on in the villages!
