Our diversity business in Idaho

10 years ago Patricia Ama and I shared Royal African Culture with Foxwear. What better way to express our love of diversity? Following are pictures of this adventure.

Challenging us now is our needing to remain in Ghana, W Africa because our returning flights have canceled 10 times. We can’t sell to customers or wait on them at the shop, and even if we were back, no one can come to choose a garment. Somehow we will survive.

A brief history of Ama’s Royal African Culture work in Salmon.

A happy student

Upon getting USA citizenship 10 years ago, teaching W African cooking was great fun.

Idaho teachers heard Ama was living in our community and so she was invited to give these youngsters a glimpse of the world they couldn’t even imagine.

Next came using our industrial sewing machines for African styles using African fabric.

Design created at the shop

A few customers called after discovering us on the Internet.

We introduced Ama’s creations to people visiting fairs in Salmon Idaho and Western Montana. People needing diversity were overjoyed. Alas, these markets are canceled this year.

Here are some creations

We’ve been interested in these fabrics for a long time.
