The Betsie Jane Sling and Exclusive Kitenge Pakira Set

Did you know that our new Assistant Creative Director Betsie Kubwayo lived Rwanda?!  When she moved to Cleveland she brought with her a few Kitenge Fabrics for us to use!
We are swooning over our 6 new Rwandan inspired, Kitenge fabrics! Our six exclusive fabrics are so unique and beautiful. We love these fabrics so much that we created a package bundle set with each fabric and named them The Pakira Set. Each Pakira Set contains, All The Things Pouch, Zuri Pouch, and Fabric Key Fob. All your summer essentials will fit perfectly in these adorable pouches. 

Below is a a small explanation from our Assistant Creative Director, Betsie Kubwayo, about our exclusive Kitenge fabrics.

While living in Rwanda it was easy to fall in love with the vibrancy and color all around. One of my favorite things to do was fabric shopping in the local market for wax cotton fabric, or “kitenge”, in bold shapes and bright colors. Knowing Creative Director, Joanna’s, love for Rwanda and the fabric there, I set off into town to seek some pieces to bring back to the U.S. for Free 2 Fly. Imagine stalls filled floor to ceiling with layer upon layer of patterns as attendants climb, pull, and push over mountains of material to help you see the exact fabric of your choice. After a few hours of messaging back and forth, we settled on some beautiful fabrics to make into bags. I am excited and incredibly honored to share a bit of Rwanda’s culture and to connect such a huge part of my life there with people in the U.S.
