Nafoproject

In 2021 Lamin launched its independent brand that B&W supports with a brand advisory.

Nafoproject is a small tailoring laboratory, it is a project in continuous evolution where the garments are designed and manufactured using waste materials. Every garment is born from the action of putting together, fabrics, memories, experiences and cultures, all together are signs of a tactile language. (Lamin Saidy)
