My name is Margaret Kadi and I own a ethical brand based in Sierra Leone, West Africa called ‘Project Sierra Leone’. We work with artisans who make us beautiful handmade products like beaded clutch bags and placemats, raffia clutch bags and Kaftans. Our artisans are mostly disadvantaged women who depend on us buying their wares for their monthly incomes. Our web address is www.projectsierraleone.com
We are currently looking for a great tailor that would be willing to come out to Sierra Leone to see our work and possible work with us. The tailors here are not trained so cutting patterns is not their forte. I am not a tailor either and I want our brand to start making tailored dresses in African Fabrics in the near future.
I would be very grateful if someone could get in touch regarding the above.
Thank you Lincatz this is valuable advice.
