African fabric is bigger than Ankara. It is Kiting, Akwete, Mud Cloth, Kente, Batik, etc. Our LOVE x GHANA collection is handmade, from the Batik fabric to the final dress, in Accra, Ghana. Bold patterns, unique fabrics. It's the LOVE DOT way.
EVERYTHING HAS AN ORIGIN STORY. Traceable by LOVE DOT uncovers the inspiration behind the slow fashion movement through articles and profiles of the companies, brands, and designers making sustainable fashion a way of life.
Fashion has always been a reflection of culture, and culture is the strongest articulation of identity. At Love Dot, we believe that what you buy exposes your connection to the world. As a brand, we invest across Africa (Ghana, South Africa, and Nigeria) to create our own limited edition items (clothing and jewelry), designed in the U.S. and handcrafted in various places around the world. As a retailer, we are committed to bringing the best high-quality, sustainably made, global artisan brands onto one platform for you to discover and shop. Every item we sell has a story to tell regardless of where it's made.
Artisan: a worker in a skilled trade, especially one that involves making things by hand. In a world where fast fashion is on trend, we are choosing to do things differently. That means respecting the time, energy, and craftsmanship that goes into making each pieces; and partnering only with brands and makers that reflect the fair-trade principles we stand for.
Spread a little global Goodwill. Giving back is at the core of how we operate. From the brands we sell employing hundreds of people in their respective regions, to the profits we share. In fact, 3% of our annual revenue is reinvested in artisan focused nonprofits, globally. Becoming a customer means becoming an investor in the future of small businesses around the globe.
