Through a successful launch of Ensign, 3form designers knew there was more to be created in Ndem’s tailor shop. Artisans dye, starch, cut, sort and sew the individual flags create a rhythm of color for Tribe. Distinct warm and cool colorways are then captured in Varia Ecoresin®. Tribe brings warmth and welcoming through the rosy hues of Sunset and a sense of calm, yet rejuvenating in the Seagrass palette of blues.
Beyond product sourcing, the 3form Full Circle program supports the ongoing education of the people in this region of Senegal to become increasingly self reliant. 3form funds and oversees several programs to improve living conditions in and around Ndem, Senegal. 3form implemented self-sustaining micro-savings groups. These structured assemblies enable women in the community to support each other when financial needs arise—without any outside funding. Additionally, 3form supports the local community with specially engineered, solar-powered cell phone chargers. Providing power for communication between those working in the surrounding urban areas and their families, these cell phone chargers secure a small fee giving the women who manage them a much-needed source of income.
