YOOX.COM, the world's leading online lifestyle store, chose none other than yours truly, Studio One Eighty Nine, to create an exclusive capsule collection featuring our signature hand-batiked or hand-dyed Italian cotton, silk or indigo pieces. See all exclusive pieces on yoox here.
An Insight into our Collaboration
We worked with our artisans to experiment with vintage denim, natural indigo and hand-batik, adding special touches in the construction of the garments. They’re versatile pieces, perfect to travel with and have taken us from day to night on many occasions.
We promote African culture and support the development and economic independence of local communities. Your purchase creates a job and supports an education. You will look good, you will feel good and you will be doing good. That's as good as it gets.
Ghanaian artisans applied traditional African batiking techniques to high end Italian silk and cotton. Because of the handcrafted nature of the collection, no two pieces are exactly alike and each piece reflects the hand of the artisan that produced it and their story.
