The artisans earn a steady and fair income and are empowered through education in micro-financing, savings, and entrepreneurship classes. Every product is handcrafted with textiles from the Volta Region. Through Della, the passionate and talented women who create the pieces are given an opportunity to build a foundation for a better life.
Fabric dyeing is a historical and rich cultural tradition in Ghana. Fabrics are dyed by hand, resulting in beautiful patterns with vibrant colors. One of the most iconic Ghanaian techniques is tye dye. To create tye dye patterns, artisans first bundle fabric into sections. The fabrics are submerged into brilliant dyes, but the tied sections resist absorbing the color. The fabrics are soaked, washed and dried, leaving a brilliant pattern on the finished product. The tye dye process is time-intensive, but Ghanaian artisans are recognized for their care and attention to detail, resulting in beautiful, one-of-a-kind textiles.
Ghana is a country whose immense cultural diversity is a reflection of the more than 75 ethnic groups living in the country. Ghana is often described as a land of festivals, music, and traditional dances. There is hardly any community, clan, or tribe who misses an occasion to celebrate: from the right of passage child-birth, puberty, marriage and death. Ghanaians are well known for their craftwork such as hand-carved stools, fertility dolls, and colorful ‘kente’ cloth.
