Famous American rapper, songwriter and actor Snoop Dogg has used Belarusian folk ornaments to adorn a collection of clothes and other items available in his online shop.
The collection, named SNOOP LOVES BELARUS, includes T-shirts, backpacks, and cases for phones and tablets. The design was worked out by Boorj, an artist from the HoodGraff street-art team from Vitsebsk, Belarus.
Boorj, who now works in St. Petersburg, Russia, told RFE/RL's Belarus Service that Snoop Dogg got in touch with him via the Internet by the end of 2013.
“Snoop loves various ornaments and patterns. He was very surprised that Belarus has such an unusual ornament. And he told us – let's do it. So we dashed off,” says Boorj.
