A Dinka Corset, hand-beaded by Mary Padar of the Dinka tribe of South Sudan, is a stunning work of art. Whether you don it over an evening dress for a smashing entrace, or add drama to your jeans and heels, it is sure to add the Wow factor to your wardrobe.
Women from 19 different tribes come together at The Roots Project in Juba, South Sudan, learning from one another's traditions and overcoming prejudices. This newest of all countries, born in 2011, is still recovering from the ravages of decades of civil war, not entirely over. The common pursuit of artistry is a balm in the midst of violence. The results are stunning.
