Introducing Our New Fave Brand - Geometric

Geometric is an accessories and apparel brand that puts positive social impact at the heart of their business model. They not only make beautiful handcrafted products but most importantly, we love them because they aim to give back to the communities they work with on an environmental, economic, and educational level, aligning perfectly with our very own values here at Adinkra Designs.

Geometric follow three principles to ensure they are meeting social impact goals:

    1.   Excellence in quality assurance standards 

Geometric run an Apprenticeship program to train self-made tailors and artisans in design and manufacturing techniques. Having visited their workshop, we are really impressed with how they are committed to continually testing quality assurance standards and production methods. At Geometric, they also see the importance of guiding consumers on their buying habits so that they not only invest in products that last but also know how to preserve the life span of their Geometric products.

2.    Sustainability on an economic and environmental level

Again, just like our Adinkra Design products, all Geometric bags are handcrafted using sustainable production practices such as low electricity use, natural dying, drying, and tanning techniques. The handbag range is crafted using locally sourced materials as well as some reclaimed materials. It is also important to Geometric to maintain traditional craftmanship skills while building upon these skills with their workforce development training.

3.    Promoting art and culture 

We just love how Geometric tell the historical origins, creativity, and culture of the artists and countries they partner with; while amplifying their voices, entrepreneurial spirits, skills, and lives across the globe.

Fathers are weaving while growing crops and brothers and sisters are watching, learning and developing their own take on the craft. It’s a balance of life and artistic feeling.
