Empowering through Fashion

We create clothing and accessories made with love that is aimed to empower their wearer and the people who are working and producing our products, with a special focus on women. By offering bespoke and unique clothing that adapts to all sizes and body shapes it promotes natural beauty whilst representing the cultural diversity, so we can continue to make a positive change within the fashion industry worldwide.

Why do we need to fundraise?

Train, Build, Grow

  • Train and employ workers to be able to produce ethical fashion at the highest standard whilst gaining skills in business and crafts
  • Build on existing projects in Mali: setup production studio and expand woman’s project.
  • Grow and expand so we can serve the demand by opening an online shop within the UK and in the future to be worldwide

Train, build, grow is our concept to have a successful network that provides the people of Mali the opportunities to develop and maintain skills for life. By setting up the production studio it provides workers with a safe and comfortable environment to train and produce products, which will then be available to order from our online shop www.artoffashionwrapping.com, which will also offer styling tips and wrapping techniques. We are planning to expand and collaborate with like-minded ethical fashion and textiles organizations in Africa so we can maintain the traditional techniques used.

It’s all about love and about giving back, so being able to become a one of a kind company where employees will be encouraged and supported to pursue their dreams.
