fabric and clothes made of African fabric
A brief history of West African fabrics http://www.slate.com/articles/arts/design/2012/03/african_fabric_where_do_tribal_prints_really_come_from_.html
We use fabrics from Ghana and the Netherlands. Here is a good article on both called African fabrics recent history
Leaving the Kumasi, Ghana market after a successful day of selling, I walked into the path of another clothing manufacturer. After some talk we realized how much we had in common. From there it was the commitment of working together.
Now we design and sew clothes in America and visit Ghana and Holland often. You’ll see what also is made in the shop at foxwear.net
With a background strongly immersed in my Ashanti culture, I know how each African fabric pattern represents a part of life.
I’ve learned how to use industrial sewing machines for the clothes I make.
From working in business (Volvo) and selling at the biggest market in West Africa as well as the Missoula Montana People’s Market, I’ve learned how to give customers what they want.
