About me / About business or organisation:
I am the founder of Xoomba, a feisty little company with large ambitions to create as many sustainable jobs in West Africa as possible through organic fashion fabrication and design. We currently produce organic cotton, hand woven fabric and we are beginning to produce finished pieces of clothing. We encourage other designers to use the resource we have established and order organic cotton fabrics for their own designs.
Career history / Company history:
My career has been a mixture of work in design, theater and small business. I have worked in the theater both onstage and off, creating, choreographing and making costumes. Meanwhile, my parents are designers who started the iconic design company, MacKenzie-Childs, which provided me the chance to work in many capacities of their business, from design and marketing to emergency management when the company was going bankrupt! Now I have decided to use the skills I have to addressing the great concern I have for our environment and earth justice.
