A socially responsible label, made in Ghana

Kente weavers of Bonwire

Eddie Murphy wore it in Coming to America; Kendrick's backup dancers are adorned in it in his music videos; and members of congress were seen wearing it in protest at Trump's SOTU - Kente cloth is as beautiful as it is symbolic.


When I buy a can of coke in Ghana, the shop attendant wraps it in two 'rubbers' (local name for plastic bags), and gives me a straw. When I want to fill up a water bottle to quench my thirst from the hot Accra sun, I can't use the taps, so I buy a 500 ml of purified water in a plastic sachet from the road side.
