Founded in 2019 by Sydney Emeka Nwakanma, this project aims to bridge the gap between Africa and Europe and connect the two sides of his heritage. He wanted to create a sustainable stream of income for African communities by upcycling materials, aiming for a waste free production chain and exploring new ideas of sustainability.
TEAM: founder + 3 tailors.
MATERIALS: Upcycled fabrics.
IMPACT: Reuse of materials before they end up in polluting the environment.
I travel to Africa to find fabrics that can be reused and made into some beautiful clothing. The Second hand markets have clothing that comes from Europe & America and fabric dead-stock like curtains.
I bring the materials i found to my amazing tailor-collective in a small town near mount Kenya.
we work with
We work with local tailors to create unique pieces out of the discarded clothes and hence circular fashion made in Africa.
