Yenenga

Yenenga

With its blue and black stripes, "Gangla Pelga" is a handmade fabric punctuated with the sounds of traditional myths of the Mossi ethnic group of Burkina Faso. Legend has it that this fabric would bring good luck. It accompanies the child throughout his or her life from birth.

This fabric is woven by craftswomen from the weaving centre created by Elisabeth in the 1970s. The aim of this centre is to facilitate the professional integration of the most vulnerable women who are victims of violent patriarchy.

We associate this model with cork, an excellent substitute for certain petroleum products and animal leather. Soft and waterproof, cork degrades naturally, without creating toxic residues.

Minimalist and discreet, the Yenenga model is ideal for adopting a casual, classy and urban style.

Umòja, which stands for “unity“in Swahili, is a shoe brand that combines tradition, modernity and innovation while enhancing African textile crafts while respecting the environment. The brand uses natural and innovative materials hand-crafted by small craftwork cooperatives based in several African countries to create aesthetic, singular, cultural and artistic sneakers.

The idea was born about 3 years ago when we were interested in African traditions and culture, we came to wonder why these traditional textiles so noble, worked entirely by hand and eco-responsible were not enough repre-sented in the world of fashion. Several trips to East and West Africa allowed us to have a first contact with African crafts. The advantage of these fabrics lies in their method of manufac-ture. These African fabrics and weaving techniques are also classified as intangible heritage by UNESCO. Our desire is therefore to introduce the world to this authentic ancestral know-how.
