Sun’s out, guns out. Have you been hitting the beach? Picnicking in the park? What’s your favorite pieces to rock this summer? Well, here are 5 brands that span the entire continent of Africa from the very bottom to the tippy top that are ethically made and you’re going to love.
1 | Lalesso
Full disclosure, we actually love Lalesso’s kaftan’s even more than the swimwear, seriously all their resortwear is on point, however there are so few brands we find that offer ethically made swimwear made in countries outside the western world that we think they’re worth the shout out.
2 | Mar Y Sol
Artisan made in Madagascar, you’ll never want another beach bag again. This huge carryall is as chic as it is ethically made.
3 | Francis + Benedict
Empowering women in Togo, these beautiful skirts are made with the most vibrant African fabrics, sure to turn heads wherever you go.
4 | Rafia Chic
We personally love Rafia Chic’s loafers which will transition perfectly into fall. With rafia sourced in Madagascar then handcrafted by artisans in Morocco you’re empowering people across the continent.
5 | Raven & Lily
This jumpsuit is cute as a button and the perfect beach cover up for your transition from splashing in the waves to dinner later. Since 2008, Raven & Lily has grown to employ 1,500 artisans around the world. This jumpsuit was made in a carbon-neutral, fair trade factory in Kenya. People + planet. Check.
