African Prints were born in West Africa in the history of the colony.In the age of the great voyage, the Netherlands began to report traditional Indonesian dyeing techniques, one of the colonial states at the time, to the West African countries, which had ruled as a colony.The African print has been produced through a variety of techniques, from traditional production methods to modern methods that can be produced in mass production.
the history of African printing,
On the other hand, in the East African region of Uganda, "Kanga," an independent cloth culture based on the Swahili culture, which was formed by mixed with African or Islamic culture, was developed.It is characterized by the fact that the proverb called "Ginna" is written in the cloth, and it is mainly used as a cloth for women to wear.The women were dressed in a cloth that expressed their feelings, and gave their own thoughts to them. In East Africa, which has various kinds of cloth culture, the African print that was born in West Africa was introduced to Africa and spread throughout Africa.
In RICCI EVERYDAY, African printing is being made from West Africa and Ghana.

Usually, a cloth stain uses a lot of chemicals and a lot of water, but it can also be discharged without cleanlination.In addition to the water purification plant, it is not only able to discharge the water back into clean water, but also contribute to the conservation of water resources by reusing the water.
Unfortunately, the African printing has been exposed to cultural theft issues.
The design developed at the plants in Ghana is illegally copied without permission, and sold in local markets across Africa.
RICCI EVERYDAY decided to procure the dough that transcades the African continent for a whole day, and to procure the dough that has been identified as Made in Africa, and from Uganda to a factory in Uganda once a quarter is to be procured from Uganda.
