Behind The Scenes

In March this year, we took a trip to Ghana to meet our core seamstress and her students. We were also honoured to meet other makers including 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.
