I am a chemical engineer and project management professional who loves connecting ideas and collaborating with people such that sustainable realities are created. I have over 10 years’ international experience in developing, managing and directing projects for a broad range of industries and more recently, the apparel industry. My passion for nature and sustainability, combined with my desire to contribute meaningfully led to the creation of ‘UnikBlends’; a platform aimed at promoting sustainable style which is based on social inclusion, innovation and economic empowerment. UnikBlends promotes ethical, fair and sustainable production of contemporary outfits and unique accessories handmade by artisans, mostly women, using sustainably-sourced African fabrics. We focus on Indigenous West African fabrics that are hand-dyed, handwoven or recycled because we believe in “Slow-fashion” that is based on traditional processes using locally sourced and environmental-friendly materials. Our products tell a powerful story of Africa that is rooted in Africa’s rich textile heritage that are unique, modern and truly functional.
