Description
The African Queen dress is a tribute to all the strong women who work in the second-hand clothing industry in Africa. The rug is designed by Eno Andrew Essien from Nigeria and handwoven in Kenya from an average of 40 recycled jeans.
These discarded jeans are collected in Africa Collect Textiles' own clothing containers. Sometimes it is necessary to replenish unsaleable * jeans from second-hand markets, if certain colors are needed for weaving the design.
*unsaleable because they are too big for Kenyans, for example.
The collection and recycling of textiles is the start of a circular economy for textiles in Africa. In this way, we prevent materials from being dumped in landfills or incinerated in the open air. African Collect Textiles supports various charities and generates new jobs.
Together with them, we are working towards an inclusive and sustainable world.
The color of the rug consists of different denim shades and the pattern is created depending on the upcycled jeans used. Due to the simple design and the calm color of this rug, it fits into almost any interior.
Dimensions: 210 x 150 cm Material: denim, denim
