Our Shop is closed for renovations

Thanks for visiting Mama Afrika! Our shop is currently offline while we're making adjustments to our catalog. We'll be back soon!


Our cooperatives are women owned and managed. And, we all know how much African women love stylish dress. So, here is a stand they've put together for those looking to add a little African flare to their daily wear. The smocks and dresses which don't have a specific size listed are "one size fits most" are usually smocks or lose fitting dresses which fit sizes small through extra large.

We do occasionally have items specifically designed in larger sizes. Mama will indicate when they are made for plus sized men and women. The unisex smocks from Ghana though are cut large traditionally, so they generally fit anyone from size medium through XXL.

Our smocks are hand-made in northern Ghana and are cotton. They are great either dressed up or worn simply with a pair of jeans. Mama’s t-shirts are unisex, but fit closer to a men’s size than women’s; so women may want to order one size less than they usually wear.
