Arakele production is undertaken by graduates hired to work in our Production division called Rama Garment. Patterns are created and items are produced in the production unit on site in the compound of Arakele Fashion Design College – we employ cycles of high achieving graduate students to produce different items.

We started making cotton masks during covid and hospital gowns. We have also made pencil cases, school uniforms, hospital gowns, household furnishings and more. We work with local organisations and NGO’s serving the community,

In 2022 we started making Period Kits to distribute to girls in need – reusable washable sanitary pads

It costs just 10 gbp for 4 Reusable, Sanitary Pads/Towels – Providing a girl with 4 pads would mean One to Wear, Two as Spare and One to Wash.

*Convenient *Reusable
*Comfortable *Discreet

10 gbp/11 usd will provide one complete set for a girl.

The pads and underwear are also provided in an attractive and discreet fabric bag made from fabric remnants.
