Words from Our Founder

"This collection holds a special place in my heart as it reminds me of the emotional impact of ‘The Color Purple’ on so many women. Nettie's character embodies qualities of strength, bravery, and sisterhood, which are also deeply ingrained in the ethos of Besida. However, when thieves burglarized our workshop in Nigeria and stole all of our hand-dyed fabric just a month before releasing this collection, I was heartbroken. The thought of giving up crossed my mind, but God urged me to persevere. With the support of my team and the samples we had already created, I refused to let this setback defeat me. As we work to re-dye all of the fabrics, I am reminded of Nettie's strength and her encouraging presence, inspiring me to move forward and share this collection with all of you. I hope you can see the value in this collection and pre-order your piece, knowing that it was created with resilience and determination. "- Sophia Danner-Okotie
