'New eco-lifestyle brand harnessing African manufacturers and artisans craftsmanship'

London, Nairobi – In Our Name is a new London-based lifestyle brand that blends technological advances in eco-materials with hand-drawn print designs inspired by Africa’s natural beauty whilst creating a positive economic ecosystem in its supply chain.

Launched exclusively as an e-commerce site, In Our Name stands for sustainable fashion that is purposeful, contemporary and easy to wear. This is reflected in its initial range of beautiful dresses, tops, skirts, trousers, bags, and jewelry made by small manufacturers and skilled African artisans.

Founder, Liza Colbeck, is determined that In Our Name will minimize the impact on the environment, support and empower the people in its supply chain and develop products that have longevity and circularity without compromising on function and aesthetics.

Drawing on more than 25 years in the fashion industry in Europe, the Americas, and Asia, Liza has spent the past 16 months harnessing and developing the creativity and skills of small locally owned manufacturers in Africa into sustainable economic and marketable partnerships aimed at improving their production capabilities and access to the global market.

“We believe that profit and purpose can go hand-in-hand and as a brand, we are committed to building a responsible and purpose-driven community by making better choices for society and the environment”, she says.

“We are not about adopting social impact or sustainability values that are nice to have. We are simply doing the right thing for the environment and society. This is why we are working towards creating a sustainable route to market for underrepresented African producers and artisan groups.”

With a product development base in London and operations in Kenya, In Our Name has a strategically mapped supply chain aimed at minimizing its carbon footprint. It only uses materials and components that will have a minimal impact on the environment; 90% of the fabric used is Lenzing EcoveroTM, a certified and sustainable textile made from renewable wood sources which use 50% less water and energy than conventional viscose during production. The remaining 10% is generic viscose and cotton sourced from traceable supply chains. In Our Name does not use materials derived from fossil fuels, unless it's recycled or upcycled and 100% of their packaging is made from renewable sources. All e-commerce bags are recycled.

Liza, who is half Kenyan and born in Nairobi, is committed to building an ecosystem that trains local artisans in all aspects of production, quality, and supply chain – all funded by In Our Name’s 100% Initiative. This enables 100% of the profits from artisan goods to be used to support various artisans and micro-enterprises in Kenya to create long-term sustainable income opportunities for the local communities.

“I see the world as a global village. The more we focus on our common values, the less we notice our differences, and the more we can be united in a common purpose that is driven by optimism to make meaningful change in Africa.

“The informal sector in Africa has the potential of becoming a significant supplier to the global market.”

Amber Wang on Cover of Exclusive Bulgaria Elle Magazine

Unique young model has the look loved by the world of fashion

NEW YORK, USA, June 29, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Fashion icon and model Amber Wang today announced that she was chosen as the cover model for the June 2021 issue of Bulgaria Elle Magazine. She partnered with famous fashion photographer Jorge Duva for the exclusive shoot. As an international modeling sensation, Amber’s photos have been published in over 40 magazines, including Elle, Bazaar, Glamour, Vanity Teen and GQ. Amber was featured as an NYFS model for GHHAUS and China Vogue, China L’Official and China Fashion Cosmopolitan. Her dedication and business sense puts her on the path to becoming a superstar.

During the COVID-19 pandemic lockdowns, many modeling agencies and fashion brands approached Wang to promote and model iconic fashions from home. Wang has the reputation for her chic fashion sense and passion for modeling.

Zhaoyang Wang, known in the fashion industry as Amber Wang, originally immigrated to the United States to study law. Amber was dedicated to her studies and was not planning to join the modeling industry, however, Amber discovered a “passion for fashion” and the “liquid art of modeling.” Wang’s modeling career puts her in the “star” category and fashion houses have recognized her “it” qualities.

Amber now has a huge social media presence. Her life is busy, between Penn State University studies and Miami photo shoots. Most recently Amber was picked for an acting role in New York for the film “Model Wanted,” produced by ITCL Film. Amber is the first Chinese woman to appear on the cover of fashion and lifestyle publication, Pump Magazine.

Wang was born in Luoyang, Henan, China, to a wealthy family. In middle school, Wang played basketball for a championship team. At the young age of 15, Wang came to the United States to pursue a serious education. Wang was inspired to move back to China and established Warrior Education, an English language training service after having attended Wilkes University. Warrior Education serves more than 30 high schools.

Amber returned to the USA, graduating with a communications degree in Communications and soon after was spotted by a modeling agency, instantly being offered a modeling job. This led to Amber participating in the 2019 Elite Model Look competition. Wang knew she had found her passion and quickly became a social media fashion sensation. To confirm her modeling potential, Wilhelmina Models invited her to shoot “sports art” with the famous sports photographer James Farrell.

Today, Wang is one of the most sought-after models in fashion. She has the reputation as a true professional and modeling sensation. In 2019, Wang landed an internship for New York Fashion Week making her even more motivated to pursue modeling. Wang was chosen to model at 2020 New York Fashion Week.
Bulgaria Elle Magazine is the Bulgarian edition of the Elle global fashion magazine brand. It has been published since 2003.

Ninacloak Collection Of Short Sleeve T-Shirts Is Slated To Be Unveiled Shortly

The short sleeve t-shirts at the company’s site have already set most buyers talking all over the globe.

HONG KONG, CHINA, June 25, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — With the latest in women’s short sleeve t-shirts, Ninacloak has kept innovative cuts and solid colours in its new collection this time. The latest colour trends this season constitute brick reds, hot pinks, yellows, mint and olive green, and cobalt blue, which the company has effectively used in women’s short sleeve t-shirts. Alongside the neutral and pastel shades, Ninacloak’ printed short sleeve t-shirts will also be available, as per company officials.

As an online store, Ninacloak have always maintained its legacy of providing only high-quality clothing, within nominal rates. This time too, the short sleeve t-shirts are priced keeping in mind the pocket pinch of common customers. “As most buyers have often stated clearly why they love our women’s clothes online, we decided to work a little more and keep offering them choices aplenty. Few short sleeve t-shirts are round necked, some are in V-neck patterns and others come in long sleeves or in short daily wear patterns. The sleeveless ones can also be availed,” said a senior member of the marketing team at Ninacloak.

In order to keep the designs attractive, the company has also resorted to Japanese and Korean fashion styles. “If customers see carefully, few short sleeve t-shirts have merged prints or a light shaded neutral colour has been juxtaposed with a vibrant shade, which looks amazing when worn. Few even impart a colour that’s close to nature, so we usually suggest buyers to slip into those when they’re probably heading for office or have vital business meetings to attend to,” added the marketing official.

The CEO of the company said, “While buying these short sleeve t-shirts, customers might chance upon special deals and that’s applicable on select women's casual dresses only. We keep coming up with new ideas and this time too, customers won’t be disappointed. So we expect everyone to keep a close eye on the collection, lest they miss out on something exciting. Basically, we don’t believe in following fashion fads blindly. In adhering to the fashion trends only, we somehow believe we won’t keep a track of what our valued loyalists look for.”

Ninacloak is a reputable fashion retail store online that sells a wide range of tops and t-shirts for women.

How to choose a bulletproof vest

Prime Armor

Prime Body Armor LLC logo

Prime Body Armor LLC logo

Plate-Carrier-2.0

Plate-Carrier-2.0

How to choose the right body armor and not be mistaken

SPRING, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, June 24, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Despite the fact that the world community associates them with SWAT police officers, bulletproof vests are worn by patrol officers, private security guards, and anyone who needs protection from bullet wounds.

The first modern vests were developed in the 60s for the military, and in 1969 they were used for the police, a year after the creation of the first SWAT team.

If you are considering purchasing a plate carrier vest for your own protection, here are some things you should definitely know before buying.

1. Know the difference between heavy and light armor.
Heavy protection uses metal or ceramic plates to prevent penetration by any projectile, from a rifle or shotgun.
The lightweight protection uses layers of special fabric to stop the bullet and absorb the force of the impact.
Light protection stops projectiles of most pistols, shots up to 12 gauge.

• Heavy protection plates are available in steel, ceramic or polyethylene.
They have high resistance to impact with their face, but as far as non-metallic plates are concerned, they are vulnerable to impacts on their edges, so caution is advised when packing and transporting them.

• Lightweight protection made of reinforced fiber such as Kevlar or Twaron or resin impregnated analog or interwoven polyfiber such as Spectra or Dyneema.
The newer polyfiber is better at absorbing impact than older reinforced ones, although lighter, but also more vulnerable to environmental degradation.
Experiments are currently underway with carbon nanotubes as a possible material for vests, as well as experiments using gel-like fluids to incorporate them into existing fibers to increase collision protection.

Know the existing levels of protection.
Bulletproof vests are classified according to impact absorption and projectile resistance.
Protection levels currently include the following:

• Level II-A – thinnest body armor.
Mainly 4 mm (0.16 inches) thick and made of soft materials.
Designed to be worn under clothing for a long period of time.

• Level II – body armor generally 5 mm (0.2 inches) thick.
Commonly used by US patrol officers.
They can dress, as well as under loose clothing and on top.

• Level III-A – body armor with a thickness of 8 to 10 mm (0.32 to 0.4 inches).
Heavier and denser than levels II-A and II.
Designed to withstand heavier bullets such as the .44 Magnum and rapid-fire weapons such as the 9mm submachine gun.
Designed for small military engagements, but can also be worn under clothing.

• Tier III and Tier IV – body armor includes 10- to 12-inch (25- to 30-cm) reinforced plates, ranged from 1/2 to ¾ inches (6 to 25 mm) thick to cover the abdomen and back …
Each plate adds 4 to 9 pounds (1.8 to 4.1 kg) to 3-5 pounds (1.36 to 2.27 kg) of light armor and thus reduces its portability.
These vests cannot be worn under clothing and are usually used by SWAT officers. Check more info at the Prime Armor LLC.

• In body armor with protection from a knife or stab wounds, plates are used similar to those embedded in vests of III and IV levels (such vests are worn to protect against knife attacks, prisoners using contraband and improvised knives and stilettos).
There are 3 levels of protection created after testing the protection against shock pressure with a limited penetration of 0.28 "/ 7mm:
Level 1 – protects against a pressure of 24 Joules,
Level 2 – protects against a pressure of 33 Joules,
Level 3 – against a pressure of 43 Joules.

the plates of III and IV levels, they add weight to the body armor, reducing their mobility; but, nevertheless, in the future it will be possible to wear them under clothes.
Following the research results, these plates can be replaced with helium plates.

• Some body armor allows the addition of additional reinforced plates for more protective layers.
In such vests, additional plates can be adapted to make a bulletproof vest with protection from a knife, but a light bulletproof vest can only protect against a sliding knife strike, but not penetrating.

4. Decide if you want to wear a concealed body armor.
Level II and II-A vests can be disguised as a loose shirt or T-shirt.
Level III-A vests can be hidden under a sweater or suit jacket for greater efficiency.
Meanwhile, level III and IV vests are masked only with a heavy jacket or sweater or military uniform and are often worn over clothing.

• Bulletproof vests that are worn under clothing are often white, so they can be confused with a T-shirt if you do not usually button up the top button.
The bullet-proof vest worn on clothes is always black.

5. Choose a vest that suits you.
A bulletproof vest should definitely fit you well, and you should feel comfortable wearing it.
A vest that is too large will not fit and slip properly, and a smaller one can injure your internal organs.
Some manufacturers only make vests in standard sizes, which can be a problem if you're shopping online and can't try on the vest before you bargain.

6. Select suitable accessories.
Body armor only protects the chest and back.
If you want to protect your shoulders, neck, sides, or groin, you need extra details.

• There are many markets with official add-ons that fit some or most of the body armor made today.

• Additional parts are attached to the main vest and additionally protect different parts of the body.
There is additional protection for the shoulders (Shoulderguards), for the abdomen (Side protection), neck (Gorget, or Neckguard) and groin (Groinflap).

• Check that the add-ons you purchased fit well with the main vest.
Also make sure they sit neatly on you and do not impede movement.

Going digital is no easy path for Peruvian artisans. Embracing technology, and reinventing themselves is important to satisfy new global market needs.

"They have given me the opportunity to present my work in a modern way, including a certificate card for customers who purchase my pieces & we are working together on new designs, too." says -”

— Edgar Mamani

WOODBRIDGE, VA, UNITED STATES, June 22, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Peru's very rich cultural heritage -one of the oldest civilizations with more than 5,000 years of history- and the creativity, long-standing traditional artistry, and high-quality craftsmanship of its artisans, have made Peruvian handicrafts widely admired for their beauty and uniqueness.

Peruvian handicrafts are often produced by master artisans and their families, based on the traditional techniques which are passed from generation to generation. These handicrafts are sold in handicrafts markets, cultural sites, and specialized stores, mainly at the domestic level and international markets. The coronavirus pandemic changed all that as demand through the conventional trade channels plummeted or disappeared, affecting hundreds of artisan families.

In such a bleak context, the new needs of the market and the digital trade channel are providing Peruvian artisans with a bright and innovative means of marketing and selling their handicrafts in the global arena.

Take Arturo Ramos's case, a master artisan of retablos, the colorful wooden boxes with representations of religious motives, festivities, or everyday life scenes, typical from Ayacucho, in the southeastern Andes of Peru, from where Master Ramos is from. Retablos are real pieces of art, the result of hundreds of years cultivating this popular artistic expression, a tradition so fervently preserved by Ramos: "I hope to motivate more people to take up this art form, and I want them to appreciate what we offer with our retablos," he says. COVID-19 drastically changed the course of his business. Using the colorful dioramas seen on his retablos, he turned his creativity to create high-quality hand-painted dual-layer face masks. His product has proved to be a new fashion sensation. His clientele is falling in love with his latest creations, helping many families who work with him to produce these face masks. Over the last year, he sold more than 20,000 units. He joined Peru Gift Shop, an e-commerce endeavor through which he can conveniently sell his products in the United States, and his face masks quickly became one of the best sellers through the number-one online retailer Amazon.

The electronic trade channel also opened new sales opportunities for mompreneur Katy Mejía. She and her father have dedicated their lives to designing and creating high-quality accessories made of leather mixed with alpaca and hand-woven textiles. All of these are inspired by the vibrant colors of her hometown: Cusco. She employs four families, and a total of 30 people depend on her business. Through her designs, she has been able to share traditions connecting the world with the rich and colorful history of Cusco. "We saw a decrease of 60% in our sales compared to 2019 days. We were forced to move our business to become completely digital and develop strategic partnerships to continue our sales. Peru Gift Shop has given us the opportunity to see our products selling well in the United States & Canada through several powerful online shopping platforms", says Mejía.

Five hours away from the city of Cusco, in Sicuani, is artisan Edgar Mamani who, with the support of 15 families, produces alpaca plush toys. The COVID restrictions and several roads strike severely affected his sales. Little by little, his business is recuperating. He has partnered with Peru Gift Shop, and his alpaca plush toys have been very well accepted, receiving wholesale orders from Maine, Maryland, and New York. "They have given me the opportunity to present my work in a modern way, including a birth certificate card for customers who purchase my pieces and we are working together on new designs, too.", says Mamani.

Going digital is no easy path for Peruvian artisans, but the opportunity, and challenge, exist to embrace technology, enter new marketing channels and reinvent themselves to satisfy new market needs. And that is the way to go. Throughout 2020, over 18 artisans and designers joined Peru Gift Shop, initiating a new era of marketing and selling their precious products. Nowadays over 20 artisans have joined Peru Gift Shop. This initiative is sponsored by the Trade Commission of Peru in Houston and the Embassy of Peru in Washington DC.
