The title of this post? Oh, it came from an Erykah Badu song I was listening to while going through the pictures above. The phrase goes perfectly with the beautiful jumpsuit I have on in the pics.
In her song ...&On, Badu was speaking in terms of knowledge when she sings "wrap your head with this material." I gave this post that phrase as a title because not only is the material I'm wearing beautiful, it also has some history and significance behind it. This vibrant, soul-train inspired jumpsuit was crafted by two designers from the IBO tribe in Nigeria. The people of this tribe are known for their creativity amongst other things. It has been said that the history of some bold African prints stem from the mid-19th century when West Africans were sent to Indonesia for political purposes. Wrap your head with this "material" and read more about it here.

Have a colorful weekend everyone!
