From Cotton to Silk: The Magic of Black Hair



An absolute love letter to my younger, tender-headed self. A warm, embracing, and absolutely needed story for the little girl in all of us.” -Korto Momolu, Fashion Designer and Style Curator, Project Runway Finalist

IT’S WASH DAY! But Elise doesn’t want to wash her hair. Will a visit from her favorite Auntie CC, encouragement from her big sister, Gisele, a poem laced with magic, and a special gift passed down from the women who came before her be enough to change her mind?

Sprinkled with #BlackGirlMagic and an ode to cultural beauty, From Cotton to Silk encourages girls everywhere to appreciate their hair in its natural state and to love themselves just the way they are. Its enchanting pages reveal hundreds of hours of hand-stitching poured into textile renderings that blend cloth, culture, and the superpowers of the kinky, curly coif.
