It feels like all my posts of late simply show recent purchases - hardly well-rounded blogging. Oh well, why change a good thing?

Last week I stopped by Nokomis and picked up two pieces from the new Osei-Duro collection, a favorite line/collaboration between Canadian designers Maryanne Mathias and Molly Keogh along with West African Women's cooperatives, Dzidefo Women’s Cooperative and Baba Blankets Social Enterprise.

Osei-Duro is a line of sustainable clothing integrating hand-spun & dyed West African textiles with contemporary Western fashion concepts. The pieces are conceived and designed by Mathias and Keogh and manufactured in Ghana for an equitable wage by local Women's groups. You can read more about their work on their website. Personally I'm a big fan of their blog which documents their travels throughout Africa and feeds my overwhelming desire to visit there soon.

I got the above Sachel top in black as well as a long, loose tank top in the nebulous purple print on the left. Lovely.
