About Atelier D'Afrique

 

Atelier D'Afrique is about inclusion, making connections and authenticity. 

 

We created Atelier D'Afrique because we believe every individual should be able to exrpess themselves in the way they desire. Our dream is to create a community of inclusion, where people are free to express themselves, share their dreams and ambitions through a common passion for ethical fashion.

Our dream reflects our team. We are no fashionista's, but rather explorers, believers and lovers of diversity. We aim to share our message through fashion, with a team of people of all different backgrounds.

Our team consists of 7 people in an age range of 18-50 years, having 3 different religions and a 50% partition of male and female.
