We really do have the best customers! Here is another happy customer at Africa on The Square modelling his brand new shoulder bag lovingly handmade in Tanzania by Issa. Check out the amazing hat he is wearing, which even has its own fairy lights. Very impressive! What’s great about these bags are that they are all made using recycled fabrics so no two designs are ever the same! It also prevents offcuts, from the tailors’ workshop floors, from going to landfill so is very sustainable and environmentally friendly. Did you know that it is estimated that we make 400 billion m2 of textiles annually & 60 billion m2 is cutting room floor waste? A shocking statistic. We need to up-cycle more to help protect our planet! 🌍

If you weren’t able to make it to Africa on The Square last weekend don’t worry as you can watch some of the African dance parade here! Have you ever seen an acrobat balance a step ladder on his head before? Watch to the end as it’s very entertaining! Don’t try this at home folks 😂💃🏻🥁

A little Monday motivation! “Kuwa geuzo unalotaka kuona duniani”. We love this Swahili proverb as it is so true. Campaign for what you truly believe in be it ethical fashion, climate change or plastic free oceans. The list is limitless. Real change starts from the ground up as we have experienced helping to empower our tailors in Tanzania to improve their livelihoods one colourful garment at a time! Even the smallest of changes in your lives can make a big difference such as using reusable water bottles or coffee cups. Change is happening and it’s exciting to be part of the movement. How are you helping to change our world?💪🙌

A little mid week motivation for you. ”Hakuna njia panya ya kwenda mahali pa thamani” means that “there are no short cuts to any place worth going” (Swahili proverb). Very wise words of wisdom that we can all definitely relate to! Work hard to achieve your dreams and & believe in yourself 100%. Don’t be afraid to dream big. Focus on your strengths and not your weaknesses. Rome wasn’t built in a day peeps! ☺️

Earlier this summer we sent some offcuts from our master tailor’s workshop in Tanzania to a UK primary school to inspire their year 2 pupils to design and create their own African prints! They had great fun learning about kitenge fabric, their origin, history and printing process. As well as making colourful sketches of the different kitenge designs they also created their own multi-patterned prints using polystyrene tiles, small wooden wheels and printing ink. The end result was an incredible art installation of all the children’s artwork on large white, bedsheets. Click the link in our bio to see the results!
