Behind The Scenes

Our sourcing trip to Ghana to meet our core seamstress and her students that we work with also led us to other talented creatives. We were honoured to meet Dora and her family of batik and tie & dye makers. Hofs Collections believe that forming genuine face-to-face relationships with our makers is invaluable and intrinsic to the mission of House of Sankofa Collections.
