ABIDJAN—Awale Studio is a dynamic, Abidjan-based clothing line offering clean and colorful apparel inspired by everyday life in Côte d’Ivoire.
The studio gets its name from the popular board game by the same name, played across several West African nations. Awale also means “love one another” in the Dida language spoken in the Gôh-Djiboua district of the country.
The fabrics used are made from cotton cultivated in Khorogo, in north Côte d’Ivoire and are hand-spun and woven by local men and women.
With its vibrant hues and breezy tie-dye designs, the brand’s latest collection captures the radiant essence of Abidjan’s central district and the dreamy appeal of an “endless summer.”
Today, we present an exclusive first look of Awale Studio’s newest collection, “ETE89.”
