Talensi set the tone for the emergence of a dynamic fashion that is sustainable at heart in the Ghanaian creative environment, arising from the notion that fashion can be ethical in a setting that did not initially believe in this potential.
Talensi collaborates with local producers and artists to inspire a new generation of fashion designers that draw on raw materials manufactured on the continent, creating a stylish but indigenous brand. It retains its fledgling soul while evolving to match the ever-changing styles of its birthplace, her people, and others who regard Africa as the cradle of human life. Every purchase is a 100% handcrafted item entrenched in a culture of creativity and sustainability that gives back to our community by encouraging people and spaces to flourish based on their meaning of growth.
Their diverse creative team is always on the lookout for new ideas that speak to the Talensi ethos of sustainable fashion. For example, fashion clutches made entirely of richly organic dyed straw, raffia, or bamboo grown in Ghana's northern regions.
