Crafted from soft local cotton, and hand-dyed by artisans at the famous Indigo dye pits in the Nigerian city of Kano; this piece will guarantee versatile wearing opportunities. Complete the bohemian mood by constrasting the shirt's indigo tones and flax sleeve detailing with white jeans and layered gold jewelry.

Sustainable brand NKWO relaunched in 2012 in Nigeria, with a focus on the preservation of traditional craft while curbing the damaging effects of textile waste. Each ready-to-wear piece is crafted using traditional West African weaving, beading, hand-dyeing and embroidery. The designer created her own fabric—using a modern strip weaving technique—dubbed “Dakala.” This hand-loomed upcycled fabric has a distinctively rich feel and is featured in each collection.
