We have embarked on a mission to work with craftspeople and creatives all over the continent. This season, the My Asho Market clothing has been created by our very own in-house makers right in the heart of Lagos, Nigeria.
This set-up is extremely important to us and we are continually developing close relationships with creative and skilled people in different African countries.
We are particularly interested in rediscovering traditional making techniques as a lot of such techniques and the skills required are fast disappearing.
We have tie and dye techniques in the West African region as well as a tradition of handwoven textiles for example. All these we will be featuring in the near future.
Is there a traditional technique or skill from your country that you find interesting? Do leave a comment and let us know about it.
