MEET THE ROOTS

ROOTS SEYCHELLES is a textile and lifestyle brand based in Seychelles!

Founded and owned by Ras Tony and Sista Stephannie, Roots Seychelles creates hand printed textiles and illustrated maps from their mountain atelier on Mahe. Using the wide array of local plants, they also create natural healing products and promote handmade craftwork created by Seychellois artisans.


🌿 ROOTS IN KREOL

Inspired by the traditional Kreol techniques used by their ancestors, they are passionate about preserving the rich history of Seychelles and her old age customs and traditions. They use the nature to promote the benefits of local plants for healing as well as for creating sustainable products. Just as their island descendants did, they use the sun as a vital resource for drying their spices such as cinnamon, coffee, cacao, fragrant plants, coconut as well as all of their printed fabrics.


🌿 ILLUSTRATED MAPS

Map illustrator extraordinaire Sista Stephannie has been traveling and drawing maps of her journeys for almost 30 years. She founded the first site on the internet to offer hand drawn maps and these days she focuses on locations in Seychelles and surrounding areas. As a créatrice for Roots Seychelles, she has expanded her skills to include screen printing her illustrated maps on textiles, bags and beachwear.


🌿 GREEN PHILOSOPHY

Roots Seychelles is very careful about protecting their fragile environment and take their responsibility very seriously. All of their products are locally sourced, and they work closely with the local community to enrich their standard of living by employing local artists, practicing fair trade and encouraging positive innovation.

With a love for the earth and their little island, they are devoted to recycling, reusing and repurposing as much as possible with minimal waste in their studio environment as well as their products. They also extend this philosophy into their every day lives.

All Roots Seychelles products are proudly made with love in Seychelles!
