Redsoil - Vancouver, B.C

Local designer Jennifer Allison didn’t set out to become a brand name in African fashion. Initially she was inspired by her world travels, especially the fabrics she had brought home from Africa. She began by making pieces for herself and soon enough her friends noticed. They encouraged her to design and sell items as a business and “from there,” she says, “Red Soil was born.”
