African Designs for the Urban Nomad
HABERDASHERY is a brand that believes strongly in Africa’s unique cultural past, present and future. Both its founders, Flo and Liselotte, spent many years in Kenya and Malawi growing up and are passionate to spread the mighty wonders of the continent with people in Europe.
HABERDASHERY can be seen as a platform on its own, showcasing products of a wide range of creative African minds on their website. This helps both the artists, earning some extra money, as well as the continent as a whole as it gets some well-deserved positive recognition. Every HABERDASHERY item comes with the background story of the maker to further strengthen this positive effect.
All HABERDASHERY’s products are one-of-a-kind, handmade and directly supporting the maker. It was never this easy to lay your hands on a piece of African fashion! Want to find out more? Click the icons!
