Carrying Colour (CC) is a lifestyle brand producing clothing, artwork and lifestyle products. These items are produced in short runs alongside other items that celebrate colour, cultural diversity and simple aesthetics.
CC products are designed by artist Duval Timothy (me) and manufactured in Sierra Leone by a small community of skilled tailors and traditional weavers as well as by myself in our South-London studio.
Carrying Colour values small scale manufacturing that embraces handmade craftsmanship and the development of alternative materials.
We have specialised research and development into the construction of our own fabrics constructed by traditional weaving in Sierra Leone. This research has been supported in part by Arts Council England funding. This focus is bringing small scale employment to skilled craftsmen in Sierra Leone as well as encouraging the continuation and development of this craft.
