Green Fashion Design from Liberia

I have fallen in love...



With a green fashion line from Liberia. Run by two sisters, Chara Itoka Cooper and Phyllis Itoka, and named after a lake in Liberia, the Piso Collection harnesses the abundance of local cotton, they have launched a line of women's, men's and little girls' dresses, with accessories to boot.






Heavens, I love these dresses... and here are the girls' dresses and the bags!





Honestly, I just love all of it.  I'll also go out on a limb and say I see a kindred spirit in Chara, who I have learned grew up in the Boston area! Here's a pic of chic Chara and her husband, from here. So inspiring. 


Piso has been developed as a company that aspires to be "textiles for social and economic change", by hiring works at higher wages and with job security. The line is also sustainable. Can't wait to see what's next.
