We work with a wide variety of small-scale artisans. Techniques we have worked with include hand batiking and tie dyeing, botanical dyeing such as natural indigo and onion skins, hand weaving and ikat, recycled brass casting (lost wax), hand crochet and machine knitting, silk-screening, quilting, embroidery, woodcarving, leather shoe making, glass bead making, patchwork, soft sculpture and performance. We have produced in Ghana, India, Peru, Canada and the United States. Over time, we have seen the greatest demand for our hand batiked dresses and jumpsuits, and that is where most of our production currently focuses. We do continue to experiment with new processes as often as possible and take pleasure in what we refer to as Special Projects. Osei-Duro’s focus in Accra is production, and our headquarters is, among many other things, the place where fabric and notions are distributed to dyers and sewers, and finished garments are packed for shipping. We are very hands on in our production, and our production team visits our contractors weekly to ensure quality and consistency. Dialogue around problem solving and improvements is constant; we’re a bit obsessed with communication. Our contractors set their prices, and we advocate for fair pricing and regularly review to adjust for Ghana’s inflation rates.
