Fashion can be so much more when you know the story behind what you wear. Join Afriek to create our first womenswear collection. Pre-order one of our limited edition pieces with 10% discount and help us to produce a colourful and inspiring collection of hand tailored garments. For women this time!

#More smiles and less seriousness Drawing inspiration from the African way of life, Afriek embraces unconditional happiness, truthful tradition and endless passion for the good things in life. With our colourful collection we pursue a happy, spontaneous lifestyle: more smiles and less seriousness!

#A story that suits Nowadays the stories behind your clothing are better left untold. In contrast to fast-fashion brands, we are proud to share our story. We create an inspiring collection of hand tailored garments. Designed in the Netherlands and hand made in Rwanda by talented tailors who manufacture one product from beginning to end.

This way of working allows us to modernize values such as craftsmanship and tradition. Combining Western design with African culture, we build a bridge between two seemingly different cultures, with the aim of uniting bright individuals across the globe.

#Let’s suit women with Afriek In 2013 we launched our first blazer collection through crowdfunding raising 17.000 euro. Since then we have expanded our menswear line, selling our collection in stores and in our webshop. Our African printed collection and the positive story inspired the owners and people around them. Now we are ready for the next step: The first Afriek collection for women!

#The crowdfunding collection Last spring designer Lisa Konno travelled with us to Rwanda to create the Afriek womenswear collection with the tailors at the Rwanda Clothing atelier. Lisa combined the colourful fabrics from local African markets with the strict lines you see in Western womenswear nowadays. The fabrics we use are bought in Kampala, Uganda, and are all sourced from West Africa. As these fabrics are so beautiful but also limited available, this first collection will be small, with no more than 20 pieces made in one print.

#Crowd fund our next step You can be the first to buy our limited edition collection! We need 6.000 euro to launch this new line. With your purchase we will be able to finance the production of the womenswear collection and test this new journey we are embarking on. As all production will be based on your order, we will be able to work in a sustainable way and reduce waste. We would love to see you in Afriek, please contact us with any question you have, as we want to stay as personal with you as we do with our tailors in Rwanda.

#The entrepreneurs Sivan Breemhaar and Kars Gerrits founded Afriek in 2013. Through making beautiful garments in a socially responsible way, their aim is to promote a positive and more objective image of Africa.

#Designed by Lisa Konno The talented Lisa Konno designed our first womenswear collection. Earlier this year she enjoyed a stunning debute with her “For the Workers” show during the Amsterdam Fashion Week. With her work she aims to create awareness about the circumstances in the fast fashion industry and to contribute to ideas on how to create fashion in a socially and environmentally sustainable way.

#Suit yourself! All pieces are limited editions and depending on our supply from the local markets where we buy our fabrics. When you order your favorite item, please make sure you fill in the fabric and the size of your choice. To decide which size you need please consult our Size Chart. To pick a print see PDF files under each item below. In November we will travel to Rwanda and make your new garment together with the tailors in Kigali, so that we can deliver before Christmas (15 December). If you have any question, hesitation or a special request, please contact us at Sivan [at] afriek.com or call/message to +31-(0)6-18780564. We would be happy to explain you everything and give a personal advise.
