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. Mud cloth is handmade Malian cotton fabric dyed using fermented mud, a process that dates back to the 12th century. On our recent trip to Paris, we met up with Boubacar Doumbia, a fellow member of the Design Network programme. Boubacar owns a textile workshop called Le Ndomo. Le Ndomo is a social enterprise created to address the unemployment problem of young people…

“I see photography as that eye-catching moment that’s passing, and one which is authentic.” Adele Dejak. In our last blog, Photographic works using nature as a backdrop, we saw Adele being both a designer and photographer. She is used to carrying her camera almost everywhere, making her job her hobby. She always quotes “I love sharing my work as much as possible; I can see the most beautiful view in the world, but if I don’t capture it with my camera and publish it, it’s like I didn’t see it at all.” I got to work with Randy Gowon, one of my…

What is Fashion Revolution Week All About? In April 2013, Rana Plaza building, a clothing manufacturing building in Bangladesh, collapsed and killed thousands of people. The building collapsed due to its lack of adherence to safety and security standards. The building was bound to collapse eventually but despite that, nothing was done to prevent it. Some major fashion brands were sourcing their garments from that same factory. They did some damage control (good PR) after the unfortunate calamity and showed the world how they had improved the place, waited for people to forget and continued with their business as usual….

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…
