    Story Behind the Art:
    'I'm Ila Suleyman from Ghana and I come from a family of artists, starting with my great-grandfather. My forefathers were predominantly millet and cattle farmers who used the leather of the animals they reared for clothing and accessories such as talismans, bangles and necklaces. I love what I do!'
