Who makes your clothes?
All our collections are designed and made by our team in our Melbourne studio.
Can you share a little more about your values?
All our collections are designed and ethically made in Melbourne. We source beautiful African wax fabrics and textiles from fabric vendors in Africa which are steeped in history and heritage, and we hand make each piece in our studio in Melbourne.
Our brand seeks to be transparent and invites our customers on the journey of watching their garment or that special piece for their home being created before their very eyes. We do this to remain intentional in making, true to our story, and thoughtful in the way we share our textiles and the history behind them.
For us, it’s not about producing just for the sake of doing so, it really is about making beautiful handcrafted pieces in a thoughtful, sustainable and honest way in the hope of creating heirloom pieces for our customers to enjoy.
Which particular fabrics do you use?
We work exclusively with African fabrics and textiles sourced from local fabric vendors in Ghana, Tanzania and Nigeria. All of our fabrics are steeped in African history and heritage, and as someone who grew up with these fabrics living as a child in Nigeria and then subsequently London, it brings true joy to be able to share these with people and make beautiful pieces for everyone to enjoy.
