NOTE: DUE TO WEAVING PROCESS, ORDERS CAN TAKE UP TO 4 WEEKS TO DELIVER

THE OGUNTORO DESIGN CHALLENGE (2021) 

To ensure safety across the fashion industry chain, innovators and industrial designers are invited to take a critical look at The Oguntoro (traditional Ebira weaving loom); and come up with a modernized version that will maintain its essential structure, values, aesthetics and means of livelihoods. Centuries-long traditions are now met with a lack of interest due to its tedious nature and the physical toll it takes on the body. Taking up to three days to weave a single piece, the average weaver is found to suffer from back pain, joint aches, arthritis osteoporosis, as she gets older. The Oguntoro Design Challenge will be launched in 2021.
