Muzungu Sisters

Slow fashion celebrating ancient crafts

Muzungu Sisters pieces are timeless heirlooms that are designed to be kept for generations. They have held this conviction since day one, and have never forgotten it. Muzungu Sisters have traveled across the world to find the most unusual, beautiful, sustainable, fabrics; the best embroiderers, weavers, and ateliers.



Muzungu Sisters approached Limesharp to re-design and re-build their existing Shopify website with the key objective to communicate what makes their products unique and allow their customers to discover the fascinating stories behind the producers.

Visual Layering

Muzungu Sisters have a very distinctive art direction, the store needed a strong visual identity without detracting from the ornate photography. We achieved this with layering patterns behind imagery and placing hand drawn elements that draw the eye.
