Loza explains, "the concept of Loza Maléombho can be captured in four words: Ethics, Fashion, Culture and Education. This briefly symbolizes the fair trade aspirations and initiatives in developing countries of Africa by working with local factories, creating jobs and maintaining ethical practices along the run. The fashion line targets a younger hip fashion forward consumer with trendy designs that translate a multi cultural and ethnic influence into modern ready to wear. Finally, Loza Maléombho strongly believes that the lack of education is the major reason for the slow development of certain African countries, and intends on donating a percentage of the benefit to the building of schools locally." Fabulous all around! Learn more about the Loza Maléombho label by visiting and
