Afia’s S/S 12 Collection
“Afia is an award-winning sustainable women’s clothing line sourced and sewn in Ghana, West Africa. This social business facilitates growth by connecting the textile and fashion production industries in Ghana, Africa with the American retail market. We value the craft behind every step of the production process: Sebold handpicks the cotton wax fabric from small distributors in the markets of Ghana, which is then sewn by a women’s cooperative paid a fair wage. Afia is an accessible and stylish option for supporting handcrafted goods, fair wage labor, and international collaboration. Afia is geared toward fashion’s tastemakers and conscious consumers. The coined “urban indigenous” aesthetic honors the vibrant, traditional textiles of West Africa and fuses them into American trends.” Afia
