For the last nine years I have been in the industry, African fashion has been dominated by the importation of conventional fabrics which are later given African prints. The market has been flooded with easy-to-produce artificial fabric, without any care for the real impact of these fabrics to Africa. Today with start-ups like Green Nettle Textiles, I believe in change. My fashion brand is going eco with assured ground impact to the local producers. I clothe people with a contribution to a better future, and I’m proud to be a changemaker.
