From Africa, To You
Each of our unique textiles is produced traditionally to maintain quality, heritage, and cultural identity. Carefully treated and woven by hand, the process our fabrics undergo ensures your garments’ wearability and integrity for a long time to come.
The dyeing process of Malian craftsmen involves the centuries-old tenchinque of using fermented mud native to the area to produce textiles that exude local flavor while garnering world-class recognition.
Directly addressing the waste crisis facing Africa’s second-hand clothing industry, we dedicate ourselves to creating a collection that focuses on reducing waste by upcycling material and breathing new life into an assortment of fabrics.
