We are often asked what Echad is or means? Echad is a hebrew word simply put, it means 'one' or 'unity'. A fitting name for my team. My name is Lorraine Tapper-Kwapong and I am Founder and Fashion Designer for Echad Designs.
It has been an ambitious dream of mine to head an ethics based business with an ulterior motive other than the usual business plan.
Our Promise, no two clothing designs are created exactly alike guaranteed. Part of our ethos is we are promoters of modest and respectable attire.
Clothing created to suit all body types; from midi length to floor sweeper elegant caftans. Our coveted materials are the latest designs and originate directly from India. We have a huge choice of materials which include some of the most exquisite embroidery workmanship throughout some garments and some are edged with Indian fabric trim for that added touch of finesse. Try our ethnic/boho style jewellery range originating a variety of countries around the globe.
The Light Bulb Moment!
We are charity centric, we needed to provide a service and receive an investment return, hence raising awareness and monies for charitable causes. Why not provide employment for the people known as the lower cast in india. How did I come to that conclusion you may well ask? Our team have friends living in India who invited us to visit and so we went, July 2015.
Finally realising my design ambitions and marrying ideas together employing a fair trade like ethical approach and prayers is the only way to go.
Fast forward to today; we hope you enjoy not only browsing, but shopping with us online therefore ensuring help to further our cause. We appreciate your support.
