Choolips is a fresh youthful brand that is known for its production in Ghana West Africa. It is notable for how the designs redefine ancient textiles traditions introducing covetable luxuries of high quality craftsmanship back into fashion.
Their womenswear & accessories collections tell stories of exquisitely detailed beauty. The beauty of their collections lies in a seamless blend of cultures, traditional crafts and innovative techniques, furthering equitable trade with each print and stitch made. Choolips‘ aim is to harmonise the mindset of producers and consumers. We trade fairly, produce locally and have small water & carbon footprints. And their accessories are handfinished by seamstresses in Ghana and garments are tailored by our producer SOKO in Kenya.

For SS13 they introduce a new collection entitled Diamond Petals.
‘Diamond Petals’ is inspired by the rich traditions of the Surma tribe from Omo Valley, Ethiopia. Known for their exquisitely beautiful vegetal headresses made from exotic flowers and the use of their bold geometric body paintings their timeless creations have us slightly obsessed beyond the season.
Watercolour petals, bright diamonds and delicate animal prints are slathered with a fresh palette of white, mint, pink, bright yellow and highlights of charcoal onto playfully chic silhouettes with a casual sporty edge.
