OUR ROOTS

African clothes

We are believers,
We believe that true success is to discover who we really are,
to discover the enormous power we have within us,
to discover the attitude we take out of life every day,
and to find our purpose.

What started out as a purpose driven festival brand in 2018 has evolved in much more than that. Driven by our purpose, we have become a movement - making real changes in the lives of human beings worldwide. 

Since 2019, incredible humans like you have helped us achieve amazing impact, like providing 520 meals to Orphan kids. And it is leading to bigger and better impact, such as a complete construction of classrooms or creating local jobs in Ghana. 

PURPOSE

Our core purpose is contribution to a better world. In our view this is the essence of who we are and what we are really about. So we partner up with nonprofit organizations to set up, support, and participate in local projects in Ghana. 15% of every purchase supports these projects. Next to contribution, we want to connect and inspire human beings worldwide through our apparel, community and vision.

APPAREL

We want to inspire you with slow fashion and aspire to connect you as a sustainable brand. Most apparel are hand-crafted in Africa by local tailors. From time by time, we will launch a new collection to the world - all in line with our exclusivity, sustainable aspirations and slow fashion vision. To guarantee exclusivity, we offer max 50 editions of every item which are only available once. 

VISION

In our world, basic needs, education, freedom and happiness are accessible for every single person, all around the world. We contribute to make this world a better place. Creating work in Africa is the first step to making an impact in this world. At the moment, we are collaborating with local teams of tailors in Africa (Ghana, Gambia, Guinea, Senegal, Kenya, South-Africa). With these collaborations, we make sure the tailors benefit as much as we do. By doing that, we help them pursue their dreams, entrepreneurial ambitions and make sure their kids are able to enjoy education. In addition, 15% of every purchase will support local projects in Ghana. 

MAGAZINE

Through our series of blogs, we take you with us on our journey in which we tell you more about the beautiful projects and the vision of Tropical Africa. Besides, we tell you stories about the humans and tribes in Africa who produce the apparel, as well as the amazing human beings who wear our apparel.
