African Apparel is a business venture with a lot of heart and is shaped from a willingness to supporting local African businesses. Creators Ryan Findley and brothers Ryan and Andy Holdeman sell t-shirts and sweaters made from cotton grown in Malawi and then sewn in Cape Town. The company developed from the trios’ desire to raise awareness for the many issues facing the country, while creating something that would assist in Africa’s pursuit of self-sufficiency. The proceeds raised from the apparel are awarded back to local community efforts.
