Choolips Pumps Batik, Better Business

Africa Fashion Guide spotted Choolips, this dope range championing techniques found in Ghana and sustainable business practices. AFG says:

CHOOLIPS’ Designer Annegret Affolderbach is often referred to as a ‘fashion entrepreneur’ with an interesting background, great achievements and an inspiring vision. Annegret grew up in East Germany, but moved to London in the mid 90’s. Her interest in textiles and fabric techniques left her to look into bringing back to life ancient techniques such as Batik and to then create beautiful dresses aswell as jackets, playsuits, skirts and accessories. CHOOLIPS garments are made following strict Fairtrade principles and is produced by a local skilled workforce in the home country of those techniques, most notoriously in Ghana. The focus is to empower developing communities and flourishes on the concept of ‘Trade not Aid’.

The line’s latest collection of scarves is available for pre-order until August 18.
