Afua In Turmeric

The name Afua was inspired by Sophie’s husband’s (fashion designer Charlie Casely-Hayford) Ghanaian family heritage and legacy. The pattern references typical Kente cloth motifs and structure, reimagined in a different scale, palette and pattern. The Afua fabric in Turmeric features bold and characterful patterns in gold and navy sit on a dusty white background.
