CHOOLIPS

CHOOLIPS revamps ancient textile traditions creating alluring textiles & playful dresses that dabble in the exotic gardens of India and the soul of Ghana’s streets. They do all of this by using fairly traded textiles which has aided in empowering developing communities,  the flourishing of  ‘Trade not Aid’ and has also brought sunshine to Western Shores.   Entirely made in Ghana by local people, the collections are inspired by people, their lives and their small businesses.

A hint of 1930’s chic underlines their latest collection with glowing colours and exotic repeat prints.  What beats looking fab and getting that warm fuzzy feeling that you have contributed to making the world a better place!


Choolips have launched an online “pop-up” boutique with its first exclusive collection of limited edition dresses available to buy from www.choolips.com.  They are also now selling in Topshop and have just launched their s/s ’10 range on Asos!
