DESCRIPTION

Afia is a sustainable women’s apparel line that is fashion forward in style and purpose. In contrast to the fast fashion model that has become so commonplace, Afia values the craft behind every step of the production process. Patterns are made by individuals in Chicago, New York’s garment district, and Ghana, West Africa. Textiles are sourced from small vendors in Ghana immediately impacted by our bulk purchase. The pieces are handsewn by the Dzidefo Women’s Cooperative in the village of Kpando, Ghana. Afia is an accessible option for supporting fair wage labor, handcrafted goods, and international collaboration.

The collection will be on sale for the first time from 11-7p on May 6-8th and 12-15th. The remaining Afia inventory will be sold online. For pre-orders, please email us at meghan@shopafia.com.
