About us

ORIGIN is a not-for-profit organisation, raising funds through the sale of authentic African fabric products.

The fabric we use is hand-woven and hand-dyed in regions such as Mopti (Mali), Brikama (The Gambia) and the Simien Mountains (Ethiopia).

In the creation of all our products we are committed to using high quality, organic cotton and most importantly we focus on the sustainability of both products and projects.

100% of our profits fund community driven, needs based projects which support the tribes from which our fabric originates.

ORIGIN was founded by Alice and Tom in 2018. They are based in Somerset, UK, and split their time between their home on Exmoor and Sub-Saharan Africa on the Origin projects.
