AfroPRgirl has been scouting for the latest scoop and concludes that technology absolutely ought to be fashionable. This is the first I’ve seen of African accessories for technology products by Los Angeles based designer Tina Tangalakism who volunteers and teaches at the Happy Kids Orphanage.
[hidepost=0]After Tina met local seamstress Beatrice Agabe, they discovered a shared love of design and passion for giving back to people lives. In this unique connection coupled with rough sketches and torn fabrics was the brand Della born indigenous to the village of Hohoe in Ghana. Apart from the new collection of iPad and Macbook cases, Della’s premier design, the Classic Hobo, is the cornerstone of the collection. As functional as it is beautiful, the Classic Hobo is constructed of Ghana’s stunning local textiles. Each purse is handmade by economically vulnerable women working under Beatrice’s mentorship. The sale of every bag has a positive effect on the people of Hohoe. Tina’s intention behind Della is to provide jobs and education to the community, while bringing awareness of Hohoe’s struggle to the Western World. [/hidepost]
