Sboutiful´A = Sboutiful + WearFula
Sboutiful ́A has the aim to maintain African culture by combining handcrafted traditional fabrics, old weaving techniques, pattern and codes with a contemporary twist. We work with passionate artisans across West Africa to create designs that are more than colonial waxprints. Our oversized mythological textiles, unique and minimalist designs require more than love for fashion – they require attitude and a long term perspective for the future. Our aim is to create a bridge between the Afro Diaspora and Africans on the continent.
Mystic & Traditions
Our clothes represent an alternative to the colonial waxprint. Fabrics such as Bogolanfani, Leppi and Faso dan Fani are part of long-standing traditions based on myths in Mali, Guinea and Burkina Faso. It is said that they have powerful protective healing qualities and act as magical talismanic textiles. Therefore wearing it requires more than love for fashion – it requires attitude and awareness.
We have Families in Guinea, Burkina Faso, Mali, Senegal, Ghana and Morocco.

To The Future
Our designs are always based on traditional patterns and craftsmanship. In the future we want to combine our contemporary diasporic perspective with traditional know-how and new technologies. In future collections 3D printers, VR and codes could be used. Our long-term goal is to create a bridge between culture, identity, politics and architecture.
