Fighting the causes for flight in Ghana with slow fashion, fair fashion & education!

THE EMPOWERMENT - AND UPCYCLING PROJECT FOR TAILORS IN GHANA PRODUCING SUSTAINABLE FASHION

Unique second-hand and slow fashion, upcycled in Ghana. We buy second-hand fashion from the Ghanaian market, which arrives there by the tonne every week, and embellish the exclusively selected garments with Ghanaian fabrics before selling them back in Europe to sustainability-conscious customers. We use the profits from the sales to pay fair wages and at the same time set up a training centre for digital sellers, where the tailors learn social media and marketing so that they can market their own products in Germany. This makes them fit for the international fashion market. This is how social entrepreneurship works.

Every Kofaya piece is unique! 
Nobody in the world wears the same!
Be unique with our ghanian – german fashion wear.

Kofaya Shop -
Fair fashion to the fullest

The empowerment project Kofaya for tailors in Ghana supports Ghanaian women in the tailoring trade and promotes the development of business relationships at eye level with Europeans. The main goal is to provide the tailors with training in social media, social marketing, non-violent communication and business strategies to give them the necessary skills and knowledge to market their own collections in Europe and worldwide. The collections which they sew during the training  are based on the upcycling idea, combining European secondhand clothing with Ghanaian fabrics.  The unique slow fashion finished products are sold in Germany, which on the one hand generates fair income for the tailors and on the other hand can further support and finance the project.

We produce in Aburi / Ghana
