All Blackfly clothes and bags are designed and manufactured at our own studio in Nairobi. We collect handmade African fabrics such as batik from Tanzania, Adire from Nigeria, Shweshwe from South Africa, Bogolan from Mali. We also search for the best factory-made African wax print, and at the second-hand market we look for quality zippers, straps, silk from old saris, leather garments etc, that we can take apart and incorporate in our designs.
This means that most of our clothes are bespoke one-of-a-kind and not available in different sizes or colours. But don’t despair. If you see something you like in the shop or in our gallery, contact us for consultation and we can see if we can make something similar yo your measurements. Just for you.
