Insubra Retro

The Insubra Retro is our redesign of the original Insubra. The Ghanaian name for the textile that inspired this design is Nsu Bra, an Akan word meaning "water well"The tiny dots are meant to resemble the ripples that are formed after water has been fetched.

In Nigeria, it is referred to as "disk" or "record" for obvious reasons. 

In Togo, it is known as Gbedze, which references the straw hats worn as protection from the sun by royalty.
