Our first major supplier is Vlisco. Based in the Netherlands, they produce Africa-inspired textiles using traditional methods. Fabrics we source from Vlisco range from strong and gentle Wax Hollandais to soft and shiny Cotton Satin, satisfying a wide range of customer preferences. The origin of the fabrics can be verified using Vlisco’s authentic 5-step process.
Our second choice is driven by the unique features and production process of the textile called kente. It is woven on ancient handlooms, operated with hands and feet. Kente is produced in strips of cloth, eight feet long by four inches wide, further sewn together to create the required sizes. Kente fabrics are sourced from local communities of weavers. You can verify the origin of each piece through a QR code with records accessed using blockchain technology. Learn more about the unique features of and history behind kente here.
