About

Who is ROOTS?

We are Sista Stephannie and Ras Tony
and
we live in Seychelles!!

We are an American-Seychellois design team and have a love of nature, color and textiles.

Stephannie is a free spirit who studied at Parsons New School for Design and spent her career between New York City and San Francisco. Working as a freelance illustrator since 1990, her illustrated maps and couture stationery designs have been featured around the world, but her true love is African textiles and fashion design, a passion she developed on her first trip to Africa twenty years ago.

Tony is an island man who grew up on the beach and has a love for the sea. His never ending creative talents include writing, drawing, poetry, screen printing and music, and is an expert at the 3 r's--recycling, reusing and repurposing. He has worked with the best screen printers in Seychelles and launched his own collection in 2013 based on the Kreol culture and finding inspiration in his roots.

When they met, they knew they found their perfect match and quickly began creating beautiful fabrics together. Inspired by the traditional techniques used by Tony's ancestors, they use nature to give life to their fabrics through pattern and color.

GREEN PHILOSOPHY

Roots Seychelles is passionate about protecting their fragile environment and take their responsibility very seriously. All of their products are locally sourced and they use animal-free ingredients in their manufacturing whenever possible. This is not always easy on a small island like Mahé, so they are slowly promoting the use of vegan ingredients to their suppliers and encourage a compassionate work place.

With a love for the earth, 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.
