Handmade is ALWAYS better.
a message from the FOUNDER
At femafric, we ARE handmade. Yet often when asked why handmade is so special, why our hair costs more than a similar (BUT NOT THE SAME) item in the hair store, or why bother making it in the first place? In the face of such hostility, I always respond: “Buying handmade is better for people, better for us ALL.”
That is essentially how and why I started femafric. It's like my love letter to the art of hair braiding. I wanted to contribute to the society of my parent's birth country through my passion for hair braiding.
So when you purchase from femafric, it’s the difference between buying something that was made carefully and with love rather then buying one of a million machine manufactured items from China.
The price you pay for it is exactly what you see – there are no hidden costs. All the hair in our collection is meticulously crafted by hand by our team of women in Sierra Leone. When you are buying our products, you are BECOMING part of our hair stylists' financial independence and creative expression. It’s about the time and effort that goes into it. It’s about the skill of each braider, and their technical ingenuity.
Thanks so much for your support and I am so happy that you are with us on this journey.
