Once you've seen the sun set in Africa, you'll never be the same. Africa was where THR3EFOLD's journey was born and it will always hold a special place in the heart of founder as it does many people. So in honor of Black History Month here's 5 great reasons you should consider manufacturing in Africa.
1 | Mud Cloth
This beautiful dye method is chic without getting too tribal looking if that's the look you desire. The home decor options from The Citizenry will have you dreaming of your home all day.
2 | Baskets that are chic AF
Those baskets you've been drooling over to upgrade your laundry hamper game have been hand woven sweetgrass by African artisans for generations. We particular love the baskets from Indego Africa for all our home decor needs.
3 | Beading
Whether they are hand rolled paper beads for accessories or hand stitched glass beads for garments, the skill of African workers is intricate and ready for you. We love these paper beads from 31 Bits, and also how much they've grown and diversified their line over the years from such a simple material.
4 | Batik
Super tribal, super amazing. We love batik because it's some of the most vibrant, statement patterns around. These skirts here from Francis + Benedict have us obsessed.
5 | International Development
Only 1 in 5 workers finds work in their wage economy, so most people end up settling for low paying jobs. This has a ripple effect of uneducated children, increased single mothers and orphaned children, and increased health issues. Sustainable good paying employment allows for a family to be educated and plan for their future which in turn changes the community for the better.
