Virginia Affleck

Virginia Affleck was raised in country Victoria, Australia and had a desire to travel and explore the world from an early age. Following a Degree in Fine Art, a four year stint at Sotheby’s Australia ensued which furthered Virginias love and understanding of art, along with an intrigue for anthropology.

Virginia has spent time living in the Indian Himalaya, where she became familiar with the textiles of northern India, Nepal and Tibet. In 2005 Virginia worked with the acclaimed American photographer, Josephine Powell in Istanbul, during this time she gained knowledge about each and every weft and weave that Josephine had collected in her travels before she settled in Istanbul. In recent years Virginia left Australia for a sabbatical in Paris, which eventually led her to Morocco where she now resides in Tangier, the northern most point of this beautiful North African country.
