Magi Rose’s summer playsuit reaches the Caribbean
Jamaica (https://www.visitjamaica.com/), the home of my childhood years is a relatively small (150 miles long and 60 miles across, at the widest point) island in the Caribbean that nestles 90 miles, at the nearest point, south of Cuba.
Jamaica is known by the locals as ‘the land of wood and water’ because of the lush, green landscape, beautiful sandy beaches, and its many rivers and waterfalls. Possibly the most famous waterfall is part of the Dunn’s River, on the north coast of the island, close to the resort town of Ocho Rios (eight rivers), where I grew up.
Ethnogenesis of Jamaica
Jamaica has an interesting ethnogenesis born of a mixture of nationalities. Such accountability is derived from the 16thcentury African slave trade and settlement by both the Spanish and in more recent history the English.
Hence, many of the towns and villages carry a wonderful mix of Spanish and English names. One example is that the country is divided into three counties Cornwall, Middlesex and Surrey, names drawn from Great Britain.
Jamaica is world-renowned as the birthplace of reggae music, and its capital Kingston is home to the Bob Marley Museum dedicated to the famous singer.
Usain Bolt https://www.olympic.org/usain-bolt considered to be the greatest sprinter of all time is also a son of the island.
So why am I telling you all this? Well, it is to provide a context for a note received from one of my ‘besties’ in Jamaica who got a Magi Rose summer playsuit in January and had this to say about that experience.
Received 14 June 2020
“I have had my Magi Bagi since January and I love it. Fabric is great quality and washes beautifully. It doesn’t crease and although I live in Jamaica, I find it cool and easy to wear. The design is great, relaxed and comfy but easy to dress up and wear in the evening too. I can’t tell you how many compliments I get whenever I’m out in it. I highly recommend on every level. Love it!!!!
