Urban meets Tribal

Ok so a friend of ours, James, saw me sporting a tribal print tshirt and immediately asked where I’d gotten it from. This was last year when tribal prints were all up Burberry and other designer catwalks. When I told him I’d made it myself he told us he had an idea.

Since there have been a few backpacks becoming poprular with aztec print linings, front pockets and straps he thought it would be interesting to use one of the most popular and historical cloths from our home country – Ghana. Kente cloth is traditionally woven in the Ashanti region and is known for its geometrical patterns and bright colours.

Naturally we knew it would be an amazing idea and went crazy thinking of other things we could make – ties, bow-ties, shirts, tshirts, lined satchels, iPad cases! etc…
So this is one of the samples and hopefully there will be many more to come…
