We work with a team of talented artisans in Ghana who share our empowerment, sustainability, and ethical production values. All our products are made locally, designed, cut, and sewn in Ghana. We source our materials locally, such as the African print wax, woven fabrics that incorporate the rich Ghanaian culture. In a bid to minimize waste sent to landfills, we repurpose old clothing, deadstock materials that are not fit for sale into our collection.
We also incorporate a zero-waste philosophy by repurposing all our fabric and leather scraps into a zero-waste accessory collection. Utilizing sustainable leather is very important to the brand. The brand carefully sources premium quality, eco-leathers that are organically tanned without the use of harmful chemicals. We also source surplus and leftover leather cut-offs from luxury leather companies. The brand recycles and upcycles them to create a new range of products. The durability and multi-usage of these leather skins enable the brand to transform them into a wide range of products, giving each product a unique, one of a kind feel.
Designed to Last
We focus on quality instead of quantity. Each product is handcrafted by artisans who are highly skilled in their craft. They incorporate traditional techniques and designs that have been passed down from generations of highly skilled artisans.
This enables us to create timeless designs that can be worn for years, not only one season. We also source the finest quality leather and African woven fabrics and prints to produce modern pieces, designed to inspire and last.
Making an Impact
The brand seeks to promote social and economic change.
We aim to promote poverty alleviation interventions amongst artisans in low-income communities. Our products ensure that artisans in low-income communities are provided with a stable income, safe working conditions, and promote traditional craftsmanship that has been passed down from generations.
Many artisans in low-income communities have limited access to education and economic opportunities. With every purchase, consumers support the livelihood of these artisans, their families, and their communities.
As a social enterprise, we are committed to re-investing portions of our proceeds to support local projects that focus on women empowerment and employment opportunities for artisans in Ghana.
