Mànden Style by Maï

Inspired by the rich textile tradition of West Africa - always striving for long-term sustainability.


Baki är samlingsnamnet för de mycket populära bomullstygerna som används till allt från bröllopskläder till skurtrasor. De går även under namnen Bakifani, African Wax Print, Ankara eller helt enkelt pagne.

Alla våra baki-tyger är inköpta på den vimlande stormarknaden i Bamako, där vi själva valt de vi gillar bäst, bland en oändlig uppsjö varianter.
