Toward A Vertically-integrated Fashion Industry in Africa
Business Seeds and A7 Studios spent 5 years and over $200,000 Research & Development dollars exploring pathways to developing vertically-integrated textile manufacturing in West Africa. We centered the study around a test run of tie-dyed leather bags and home decor, using Ghanaian indigo pit workers and textile artisans. Next steps include building factories and co-developing local infrastructure that will support the growth of the industry so that West Africans rely less on imported goods and optimize the local talent.
