The Kamandje Cape
The Cape is truly a hero piece within this collection. It is made using Kamandje woven cloth which is mainly produced in the city of Sifra, located in central Ivory Coast. Rebecca specifically chose to use Kamandje to retain authenticity as it symbolizes and reflects a sense of partnership. Dyed using traditional Ivorian methods, the cape is colored naturally using vegetables and a variation of plants.
The Cape is made using assembled thin lines of cotton, a cloth weave and diamond grain fabric. It is one-size-fits-all
