I am finding more and more that I love to keep it simple with my everyday outfits. I don’t have a ton of time to be planning out what I’m going to wear every day and I am also all about simplifying my wardrobe to only have pieces that I love or pieces that I can mix and match.
You guys also know how passionate I am about brands that give back, brands that are making an impact, or small businesses. This top is one of my new favorites and is SO comfortable. It is by Fatim Bahh and is handmade by women in West Africa who are working towards a better education. I absolutely LOVE Fatim Bahh… I learned about this brand over the summer when I was doing some more research for my ethical brand directory.
A little about Fatim Bahh:
Fatim started Fatim Bahh brand as a socially conscious line, to help young girls get access to primary education in Kassa, Guinea, West Africa and to help women in the rural areas of Guinea, showcase their artisanal skills to the contemporary market place and be financially independent.
During her visit to Guinea in 2013, Fatim went to see the women artisans who were part of the NGO program, she knew how beautiful the textiles of Guinea was but she also knew that many of these women did not have an opportunity to showcase their work to a a contemporary market place. Fatim’s entrepreneurship and optimistic character lead to the creation of her first collection in collaboration with the women artisans, who make intriguing and beautiful hand-woven and hand-dyed African textiles.
Fatim Bahh brand work with the women Guinea, west Africa to make the African textiles base on trend, market demand and popularity, which are then use as part of the collection. This gives the opportunity to the women to showcase their skills but also earn an income that will help them to financial stability.
This particular outfit is a favorite of mine because I love pairing a neutral top with my favorite jeans, booties, and changing it up with jewelry and accessories.
