AFRORETRO is a fashion and craft brand under which British Ugandan sisters Anna and Lilly fuse their cultures to Design, make and empowers other to find their creative selves.We make and create UpCycled T-shirts, hand-made jewellery, snoods and making and creating kits where you can learn to make your own textile items. We love making and creating so much that we also hold workshops popping up all over London where you can learn some renegade sewing techniques, upcycle unloved clothing or learn how to make your own one off prints.Our jewellery is all handmade using materials, fabrics from both our homelands, such as recycled envelopes or dried banana leaves.We love the planet and all its inhabitants, so we work as hard as we can to use ethical materials and processes.
Our Weave Tee's are UpCycled unloved T-shirts, that we hand weave with a variety of African Fabrics.Our snoods are uni-sexed and fuse soft warm fabrics with beautiful patterns and prints.Our earbobs are made from recycled and upcycled materials such as fabrics remnants, recycled envelopes, dried banana leaf and Ugandan Bark Cloth. All have been treated and sealed to ensure they are robust and water resistant.In our making and creating kits you have everything you need to create a unique AFRORETRO styled textile gift; an Oyster card/card wallet from African Fabrics and Ugandan Bark Cloth or a funky Lavender bag from African Fabrics and UpCycled denim. Great for novices as well as experienced makers who want to work with unusual fabrics.
