Yemi 8-Panel patchwork Maxi Skirt
The story behind the skirt...
Last year, I faced a challenge: what to do with production remnants? As a small brand committed to sustainability, I found inspiration in the Herero people of Namibia to create this collection of limited-edition patchwork dresses.
The Herero people's beauty, style and resilience moved me to create something unique in their honour. After months of hard work, I am thrilled to release this collection of limited-edition skirts that embody their vibrant style.
This is your chance to own a skirt that is truly unique.
Each skirt features our popular 8 panel skirt crafted with Ankara fabric. They are adorned with panels carefully selected by our skilled tailor, Helen, based in Surulere, Nigeria. She combined materials from our previous and current prints. You'll love the exceptional quality and attention to detail that goes into every skirt. And it is great to know that this has been possible in a way that conserves our planet's resources.
