Zanzibari ArtWear.png

Zanzibari ArtWear is designed with upcycled African Print textiles and fabric waste from all over Sub-Saharan Africa.

Fashion has always been a big part of my life. I have been studying textiles and patterns since childhood. What has always been important to me is quality, texture, and color. The fabrics used for Zanzibari ArtWear are designed with upcycled African Print textiles. Fabric waste from all over Sub-Saharan Africa. Utilizing waste reduction and innovative design, Zanzibari ArtWear demonstrates my eclectic  journey through modern African diaspora.

10% of the proceeds collected from Zanzibari ArtWear are donated to The Seeking Amani. The annual Seeking Amani project is a Community Building art workshop, that is set in Tanzania.
