Fair Trade Brand Dsenyo Launches Expanded Mom and Baby Collection

Dsenyo, an ethical fashion and fair trade accessories company, will launch a new expanded collection for moms, toddlers and babies available to consumers in April 2015. Building off the brand’s best-selling “Little Friends” handmade dolls, Dsenyo is already familiar with the children’s market and saw the potential for product expansion. The fair trade brand will now offer an assortment of colorful printed apparel and accessories for infants and toddlers.

Items include a Baby & Toddler Sun Dress, Reversible Pinafore, Pocket Pants, Pleated Overalls, Collared Rompers, Bloomers, Headbands, and Hats in an assortment of colors and prints. Dsenyo will also offer a Nursing Cover and Diaper Wet Bag for moms. Baby and toddler clothing ranges (3M-24M), while hats run (6M-3T). The full collection has an MSRP of $7.50 - $40.00.

All textile products for the collection are made by Vipambi Women’s Group, Dsenyo’s partner artisan group in Mzuzu, Africa, where Dsenyo’s Malawian office is located. The group serves as a sewing cooperative and workshop with a mission to train women in business and sewing skills, enabling them to be more successful. They house a stitching center and all quality assurance, packing, and exporting takes place here. The majority of women working at Vipambi have started their own tailoring businesses, and many have used earnings to send their children to university.

Dsenyo is a social enterprise partnering directly with artisan communities in Malawi, Zambia, and Brazil and enabling women to become economically empowered through the sale of ethical fashion and fair trade gifts. After living in Malawi, Marissa Perry Saints founded Dsenyo (dee-SEN-yo, meaning “design”) in 2009 to create job opportunities and celebrate local design. Since then, Dsenyo has expanded its reach to provide employment and annual trainings to over 100 artisans across three countries, which inspire further change in their communities.

By connecting artisans to the global marketplace and sharing their personal, authentic stories of social impact, Dsenyo is building a global tribe of artisans, entrepreneurs, and customers who care about sustainability and style. Dsenyo is committed to international fair trade principles and provides artisans and customers with the resources to build a better world.
