OliveAnkara is a slow fashion brand that operates from a place of curiosity and joy. They celebrate the richness that diversity brings to our world. The mission is to create joyful, vibrant, well-crafted designs that draw inspiration from traditional African fashion.

1. Mission

At OliveAnkara, they are constantly working towards improving business practices towards a greener future. Playing an active role in Singapore’s fashion industry to turn the tide on climate change by using slow fashion has always been at the forefront of the brand’s mission.

2. Sustainable materials

OliveAnkara is taking a green leap forward this year by introducing thier first OA Original Prints on fabric made from TENCEL™ Lyocell fibre. TENCEL™ Lyocell fibres are made from sustainable sources, and harvested from FSC & PEFC (certified and controlled wood) using a closed-loop production process. All the TENCEL™ Lyocell is made in mills that are OEKO-TEX certified.
Traditional West African wax print fabric is sourced in the markets in Nigeria. Wax print is 100% cotton (non-stretch fabric).

3. Ethical standards

OliveAnkara produces clothes made with care and longevity in mind for those seeking quality craftsmanship. The company works with a small group of 6 seamstresses to minimize waste throughout the production of our garments as we are heavily involved and engaged in every step.
OliveAnkara is also a member of Nu Cycle, a solutions-based waste offset service for neutralizing waste impact. At each stage, the waste footprint is assessed, offset and transformed to develop and invest into circle strategies for sustainable resources.
One of OliveAnkara’s main pillars is empowering women from all walks of life. The company helps Daughters of Cambodia. ⁠The project empowers those trapped in the sex industry to walk free and start a new life, with healing, dignity, and the means to prosper. ⁠This is achieved by providing jobs coupled with recovery programs.⁠ Additionally, 1% of your purchase contributes to Daughters of Cambodia.

4. Location & logistics

Every piece of garment is hand-sewn by two small teams of seamstresses that are located in Singapore and Shanghai.

5. Responsible packaging

Compostable mailer bags and shipping labels sourced from The Better Packaging Co. Cotton Dust Bags are some of the fabric cut-offs from clothing production. Kraft Paper Bags are 100% compostable.Thank you cards and hangtags from the Ajo Aye 2021 collection are made from FSC Recycled Paper.

6. Improvement goals

The aim is to design and manufacture the clothes with greater care, achieve greater transparency in the supply chain, eliminate the use of new plastic in the products and reduce the impact on the planet.
The improvement points are:
1. Achieve greater transparency in our supply chain
2. Reduce our carbon footprint
3. Become CARBON NEGATIVE certified
4. Help more communities
