BIG NEWS. If you go to www.ashantibespoke.com, you can order a shirt or blouse or dress, to be made to your exact measurements. And of course you can choose the material too.
It will be made up by Kofi and his dressmaking school in Gyetiase, and the picture shows him with two very happy customers. They asked him to make a shirt and a jacket in the 24 hours before they left Ashanti. He must have been up most of the night, but he did it.
Students of the dressmaking school are mostly single mothers, very poor, and their studies are highly subsidised by Ashanti Development, so it will be wonderful if this turns into a way of helping the school to stand on its own two feet.
