We make decorative home-wear and accessories inspired by African colours and fabrics.
We left for a journey, for a work experience and we came back home with a project idea. This African journey changed us: we were inspired by the emotions, eyes and smiles of the people we met.
Today, we are three entrepreneurs who strongly believe in integration, exchange and social inclusion. Manukafashion is a cooperative company which creates textile items inspired by the mix of Italian and African designs. Our products are a cultural ‘fusion’. We believe that everyone has the right to work and those who had to leave their home country should have the opportunity to start a new life elsewhere. We think that development should be achieved through entrepreneurship and we want to avoid a concept of”aid” to promote employment for professional tailors in Italy and in Africa.
We want to create a network that values the integration of different styles and cultures.
