Slow Christmas // Gift ideas from Sapelle’

For the last day of our Christmas special, I have chosen to highlight Sapelle’, an online treasure trove of all things Made In Africa by brands, social enterprises and artisans from all over the continent.

Although African style is often identified only with bold prints and very exotic artefacts, Sapelle’ have edited a collection which can be both colourful and more somber, with pieces to suit many styles and occasions. The unique range of products features everyday African fashion that’s inspired by the diverse artistic and design influences found all over the continent, injected with a dose of modern creativity.

My moodboard is all about great accessories that will make perfect Christmas gift (use SAPSHIPPING1213 for free shipping), but there’s also a huge selection of beautiful womenswear. Get browsing on Sapelle’.com!
