The collection which features a combination of elements ranging from hand dyed and batiked cotton, silk and rayon to locally sourced hand woven cotton and mud cloth. The Light on Dark collection is by far the labels largest collection till date and we can only hope to see more.
According to the label, the full expression of “Light on Dark” is the custom scarf print. To create the print the fabric is first screen-printed and then hand batiked to follow the print work. The result is a textile that refers to common digital printing aesthetics and the high/low mixing of fast fashion. The collection also highlights several hand crochet items including the Confervo Crochet Cardigan, made from hand dyed merino wool crocheted by Ayishetu Yussif Bulley, Osei-Duro’s lead crafts person in Accra. The cardigan features brass buttons that are hand cast from recycled water pipes in Ghana’s Central Region.
That is a lot of work right? But it all pays off. Check out the collection below.
