At Grass-fields we offer high quality and ethically made african inspired fashion. We create a range of modern african dresses and attire that are all sourced and created here in the UK & Cameroon.
What is the thinking behind Grass-fields?
Founded by Christelle and Michelle Nganhou, twin sisters from Cameroon, Grass-fields was created with a simple aim to put the love back into clothing again. We want to give you a shopping experience that excites you, makes you feel good and provides you with unique handmade African clothing which you will treasure from season to season.
What influences our collections?
Here at Grass-fields, our biggest inspiration is our African heritage and our love for self-expression through clothing. This inspiration manifests itself in the form of vivid, eye-catching and contemporary African print designs that can be worn casually, for a night out, or for formal events. We felt there was a gap in the market for amazing, well-made African clothing that really lasts. This project is all about us embracing our opportunity to do something different, by bringing together African textiles and western style - a combination of the two worlds we live in.
What really sets us apart?
We understand women shop more by their personality than anything else. This is why we spend our time constructing clothing that fits you well, flatters your body’s shape, and helps you feel confident when wearing it! Whether you're after an African print dress, a dashiki shirt, or an African maxi skirt, we hope we will have something for you.
We are also different in that we have an incredible Grass-fields team making clothes in Cameroon (who we make sure get three times the average salary!). They help us source high quality & unique fabric not only from Cameroon, but Nigeria and Benin as well. This is particularly important to us, as we need to make sure they truly fit our vision of creating unique African clothing that speaks to women without compromising on quality. Each piece is designed and crafted with love and we think it shows in our clothes. This is not about fast fashion, it's about making pieces that you can truly treasure
