All our ready-to-wear, African print clothing is lovingly handmade by our highly-skilled tailors in Tanzania, East Africa, who take great care and pride over their work. Each item is individually hand-cut in our tailors’ workshops using new sewing machines that they have purchased using the profits made from our orders. They have also hired and trained additional staff to work with them to increase their productivity.
These colourful African print trousers can be worn all year round, as the 100% cotton material is surprisingly thick keeping you warm or cool depending on the climate. Due to the high-quality ankara fabrics and craftsmanship, these African trousers will last for years! They are very sustainable and are a great investment buy, as you will wear them a lot. They also have excellent colourfastness so will look the same and also soften after each wash.
Our founder, Sian, buys only a small amount of the African wax print fabric in each design at the market in Tanzania from our supplier (a family run business). As each item is individually hand-cut by our tailors the print placement varies ensuring no two items are ever the same! Not only is the original fabric locally sourced but also the buttons, swing tickets and labels. In fact, nearly every component that makes up the garment is sourced from Tanzania supporting many small businesses. It is crucial to add value in every step of our supply chain so that the local economy benefits.
