If you have spent any time on the African Continent, it’s likely you would have admired local Women dressed in custom made, stunning Wax Print or locally produced kitenge outfits. African Wax Print is incredibly distinct, with combinations of vibrant colours carrying striking patterns. Every print has a story to tell, with a history of hidden messages and meanings. Tanzanian produced Nida Textiles or 21 Century textiles fabric – locally called Morogoro – is 100% locally produced East African cotton fabric.
Our collection of Wax Print & Morogoro Textiles has been hand sourced from women owned small businesses in East Africa. We are passionate about purchasing our fabrics directly, and about choosing the fabrics that stand out from the hustling fabric markets. We are committed to supporting and investing in micro businesses, and in how this can support the transformation of Women’s economic empowerment.
Each ethically handmade item from East of Africa is produced as slow and sustainable fashion in Melbourne Australia by Erica Keen. Women’s dresses are made to order, please contact me for fabric options and together we will design your incredible Wax Print or Morogoro Textiles dress.
This dress photographed is a size Small/10 Aus, made from Morogoro Textiles. It has been lined on the front and back panels to add stability to the fabric. It has no closures but slides on over the head. Your bust measurement is important for a good fit with this dress. [There is enough fabric for one more dress the same]
Thank you for choosing to shop small, and for investing in East Africa with us.
