This fabric is called "Gillette". Do you know the story behind it?

  • Nzo Ma Kongo

    Gillette is the name of a famous brand of blades, and became synonymous of blade in lots of French speaking african countries. I think this is related to the drawing on the border of the fabric.



Part of the border of this fabric is obviously taken from the story/fabric Otopa or Bonsu - concert of stars. But is it also the same story? Who knows more about this fabric?
