If you are an avid Adele Dejak follower, you must have noticed this beautiful, unique fabric we use on our bags every once in a while: The fabric is called Mud Cloth, also known as Bogolanfini in its native Malian language.

Last weekend, 14th & 15th November, was really exciting for the team and the Adele Dejak brand! We did not only participate in this year’s Bizarre Bazaar event, but we also launched our newest collection, KOBO Line – killing two birds with one stone. The sad gloomy Nairobi weather on Saturday morning didn’t kill our spirits (and our fans’). We’d love to thank everyone who visited our stand for the amazing feedback we got. The most popular pieces were the earrings, rings and bracelet. About KOBO KOBO is a Nigerian currency that seemed to have little or no value, but in real sense it was…
