Welcome to

The Home of Sustainable Fashion in Africa

The Afro-SFI is a project designed to draw attention to the role the fashion industry plays in the pollution of the environment. It forms a network of fashion business operators around the continent. The platform profiles fashion businesses and their owners. 

About Us

The Afro-Sustainable Fashion Initiative was created by Catharina Natang, a Cameroon-based fashion house, as part of a project to reduce the use of plastic-based fabrics in the local fashion industry. Initial funding for the project was provided by the Afri-Plastics Challenge Strand 3. Catharina Natang partnered with Health Research Foundation, Fako Empowerment Centre, KB Empower, Crystal Creationz, Blizz Fusion, Delly’s Fashion, and T-Rose in multi-sectoral collaboration to begin to address the microplastic problem in fashion across sub-Saharan Africa. Afro-SFI rallies fashion enthusiasts (designers, models, fashion trainers, fabric dealers, consumers, etc.) to use their love of fashion as a tool to fight against plastic pollution in the environment including our oceans.

Our Mission

The mission of Afro-SFI is to transform the African fashion industry into true a true advocate and promoter of sustainable fashion

Our Vision
