I want to introduce you all to NaSuma. You may remember me writing about how I lived in Tanzania for 4 months, here. While living in Tanzania I was fortunate enough to meet many amazing local artisans & seamstresses. Many of these seamstresses now work for NaSuma.

NaSuma was created in 2014 and is a socially conscious fashion brand based out of Bagamoyo, Tanzania. NaSuma uses handmade African fabrics to create unique dresses, skirts and tops. NaSuma employs locals, and pays fair wages to all involved. The profits from NaSuma are invested into a woman's fund called Inua, which provides education and business start-up support to women in Bagamoyo. How great is that!?!

I am so thrilled to be able to help support NaSuma by sharing their designs with you. I love this bright yellow dashiki dress! The colours are perfect for summer and the lightweight material is fantastic! My style has always been heavily influenced by other cultures and climates. I really love that we live in a post-technology world in which we can connect with companies and people across the world. The Tanzanian fabrics and silhouettes are so gorgeous, and it is so cool to me that we can now see them and wear them in North America, and also support people in the process! 

NaSuma is such a great organization, and I hope you consider ordering something from them! If you have any questions about them, or their clothes, feel free to ask! My favourite items from their collection (other than my dashiki dress!) are shown in the photos below!
