The “Kitenge”


  • Authentic African Print

  • Lightweight

  • Structured


One thing about me is that I love to travel and seeing the world has afforded me the opportunity to experience some incredible places that offer incredible things.

In our travels to Rwanda- we were able to get our hands on some of the most beautiful prints and this one was a favorite of mines. With hues of summer peach and dashs of rich wine and cyan- I consider this piece to be- the “wild card”.

And what makes it ALPHA- it who it and what it represents, a culture rich in heritage and survival filled with women who are business owners, craft makers and entrepreneurs- hustling everyday just like me to make it happen.

Sooo…meet Kitenge. She’s cool. She’s fun but she’s also fierce and of course she comes lined with our signature Italian silk made of leopard print.
