The fabric that has been used for the batik bedspread since the 1950s is a symbol of African culture.
But the fabric is also a product of racism.
In the 1950, the government banned all white goods, including batik and batik blankets.
But black African Americans were forced to buy them and use them.
Today, there are black african batiks in many black neighborhoods in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta and other major U.S. cities.
The african bats are popular with African American women and men because of their colorful designs, soft feel, and their ability to blend into fabrics and accessories.
The african fabric has become a favorite among American fashionistas, who have become so fond of the fabric that they’ve even developed their own brand, Bali, which stands for batik african, a name that comes from the Afrikaans word for african.
The Afrikaan language is spoken in more than a quarter of the African diaspora.
Africans have also become the most sought-after shoppers in the world, according to global marketing research firm BrandMetrics.
The brand was ranked No. 6 in the latest survey by the firm, which polled more than 3,000 people in the United States.
