About us

Folikela was founded by me in 2013. It is a family business run by love for the culture and people of the Mànden area. The entire range has its source in this multifaceted part of West Africa, from which I want to highlight the cultural riches.

I sew and do crafts myself, as well as ordering various handicrafts and materials from my family and friends in Mali. I also have the honor of collaborating with legendary virtuosos in their respective craft fields.

My commitment to the region means that I strive for long-term sustainable development and am always careful to pay everyone involved fairly. 

As a bonus, the traditional dyeing techniques are naturally organic so much of what I sell has a minimal carbon footprint.
