Meet the social enterprise empowering seamstresses in Ghana

Words by Fashion Journal

Do good.

IDEY KOKO is a social enterprise creating African-inspired streetwear for the young and old.

Its collections are designed in Australia, before being handstitched in Ghana by local seamstresses and tailors. The aim is to teach customers not to be afraid of loud prints and bright colours, all the while providing sustainable income for craftspeople in Africa.

All designs use West African print cotton fabric, with the prints themselves produced in extremely limited runs.

The team creating the range are paid per garment, at a price they have set themselves. This allows IDEY KOKO to promote African street style in a way that benefits the local community it comes from.

You can get your hands on IDEY KOKO online, or at Design A Space in Windsor, VIC.
