Our products are made of 100% cotton. The fabric may feel stiff at first, but it will soften after washing. 

Where do you buy your fabrics?

The fabrics are purchased on the market in Kumasi in Ghana, which is the largest market in West Africa. We buy our fabrics from local market women so that we can be sure that the money ends up in the right place and not from a large dealer. Many prints only appear once and if they do come back, we never know when. So, in love with that one print? Better order soon! †

Are all your products handmade?

All our products are handmade. From drawing the pattern, to cutting the fabric and then stitching each product together. This means that no product is 100% the same. We think this is fantastic because it gives you a really special product with a story. 

Who makes your products?

All our products are made by the women of TUMI Ghana, a women empowerment project in Kumasi, Ghana. They train women to become seamstresses and then these seamstresses are given the opportunity to earn a basic wage in addition to their work as a fashion designer by sewing the products of Maame Tumi.

Is Maame Tumi Fairtrade?

We are not (yet) certified as fair trade. But at Maame Tumi, our main goal is to create well-paid work for the women of TUMI Ghana. They are paid per item they sew, which means they can earn well above average wages on a full-time basis. In addition, we use the profit so that we can train even more women in Kumasi.

My favorite print is sold out, will it still be in stock?

When a product is sold out, the chance that the item in the same print will be back in stock is minimal. We make a maximum of 12 items of each product so that you are sure of a really special product.

Are your products also for sale wholesale?
