Eleanor Fanyinka

Eleanor tells us how her relationship with her Keepsake has changed over time.

This snakeskin bag has been around for as long as I can remember. My brother and I would laugh at how alien it looked and felt. My Mum bought it when she lived in Ghana in 1970s.

A few years back I started wearing the bag, practically wearing it to death. It reminds me of my childhood. The fact that it’s from Ghana, the other part of my heritage, also makes it special to me.
