The answer to that question is yes. The methods take longer to unpack. The commitment is real and worth it. The patience and discipline required are undeniable. I have spent the past 7 months on the ground exploring clothing, jewelry, and furniture production. Yes, the Made in Ghana adventure continues.
Would you believe me if I told you that I have pushed my launch date for Bandele Muse products 3 times? Or that I caused a fight between a group of artisans? Or that I might expand my inventory options sooner than anticipated? In this post, I share all of those experiences.
As I said in the video, timing continues to evolve. This commitment to made in Ghana and made in Africa manufacturing has a lot of moving parts that do not all move at the same pace or in the same direction.
This experience and experiment have also enabled me to understand which of those moving parts can effectively be done in Africa and which of those parts are better done outside of Africa.
