A suitcase full of African fabrics, an evening in a bar and long nights in front of the sewing machine: The origins of Maembe go back to the plan of the perfect beach towel that combines African colors with Swiss functionality. After a successful first production round in the year 2017 we decided to grow and diversify. As in its beginnings Maembe follows its vision of ethically produced, aesthetic African products with a functional design.
