As a person of African heritage, my dad is from Ghana and my mum mixed English and Nigerian, I always had a second-hand connection with Africa. My earliest memories of African culture are of the beautiful dresses and fabrics worn by my aunties and family friends. That was Africa for me, colour and pattern, vibrant, each one telling a story.
With this in mind, I wanted this shop to connect with and celebrate this colour and life coming out of Africa. Growing up in Europe most images of Africa were that of LiveAid and Comic relief. Charity drives looking to raise money for various countries and situations, however, there is more to the story of Africa.
