On discovering Aduna at a conference about The Promise of Africa I was instantly enraptured and wanted to know exactly what they were taking. Baobab... what's Baobab? And that was the question which led me on a new path of discovery with Aduna.
My passport says I'm Ghanian but little did I know about the wealth of nutritional benefits of ‘The Tree of Life’, and its potential as a pillar of livelihood in the communities which it grows.
We talk about the vibrancy of Africa, the people we meet, the colours, and the sounds. Vibrancy to me comes in a smile, and Aduna makes me smile on the inside and out. I have been working with the team on styling and to design and produce clothing that we feel will also make you smile. Watch this space…
