Akaso Ready-to-wear - Accessories

Akaso is a Belgian label and the brainchild of Philippe Vertriest, father of two Ethiopian born daughters and great believer in Africa's creative talent.  From the encounter with a book on African body painting art, he developed the Akaso collaborative design concept, uniting the Kara tribe in Ethiopia with the resident Belgian Akaso designers. Every single print in the Akaso collection is the exact reproduction of a body painting motif created by a Kara tribe artist on their face and body. Akaso pays each artist as a Western free lance designer. The Kara invests these proceeds in sustainable projects improving the livelihood of the entire Kara tribe community.
