Dear Ida,

I hope you're well.

We don't add email addresses to our mailinglist without consent - perhaps it was via the Source Expo last year, where we had a "join our mailinglist" document floating around. 

I have already unsubscribed you, but to unsubscribe, visitors can go here:

I'm terribly sorry for the inconvenience and look forwards to seeing you at this year's Expo.

Kind regards,

Hi Ida

It's on the events page, it's called Fashion Diversity 2009 and it's about the 3rd down on the list.

Hiya, no I'm not going to be able to make it, but I'm going to the fashion diversity show on Saturday. If you're going to be there we can arrange to meet up.

we are open to using african print fabrics from elsewhere if there are no local options. basically our goal is to provide work for these women so our priorities:
1. provide opportunities to the women
2. ideally fair trade fabrics
3. ideally organic

(in that order of importance to us)

thank you for your help!

these are beautiful designs. did you design these? do you have other prints besides tie dye?

This picture is from kangas that we're bought from a vendor while we were in Burundi. He said that they were designed for export to Germany.

We really appreciate your help. The fabrics do not have to be exactly like this. We are just looking for some printed fabrics in coordinating patterns that we could create a baby collection from.

I will check back for photos.

Here's a picture of the kangas that we sourced while we were there. But it doesn't seem like we're able to find anything made locally. we might have to resort to something being made elsewhere like India but only if it's fair trade.

any suggestions or help would really be great. thank you so much!!!!!

My name is Sophia and I'm the co-founder of a non-profit called Raven + Lily. We are located in Los Angeles, CA but we work with co-ops mainly in India and East Africa. We just returned from a trip to East Africa (kenya, ethiopia and burundi) about 3 weeks ago to meet the co-ops, source fabrics, and get to know the women that we're supporting.

Our non-profit works on designs with these co-ops, pays them a fair wage, helps them market and sell their goods to the U.S. Market and then sends the proceeds back to the local co-op communities.

We are really having trouble sourcing african prints made locally within Africa. most seem to be made in India and Africa. Do you have any vendors you would recommend?

Hello Ida, very impressive project and website. I'd really like to chat to you about possible co-operation.

Dear Ida,

Great to see you on our network and especially in the Africa group. I'm the Africa Group Administrator so I'll let you know about useful information that I come across. I saw that your social enterprise supports East African women but I also wondered if you have done any work in Ghana? I'm putting together a sourcing from Ghana booklet and am looking for people/organisations to feature as case studies. Do you know anyone else who would be interested in this?

I hope you find the network useful,
