A Caméléon jacket is a handcrafted, zero waste, custom piece blending vintage with wide palette of vibrant African fabrics. We strive to reimagine African inspired textiles with modern aesthetics.
Each custom piece is inspired by nature, landscape and diversity. We are a sustainable online boutique based in NYC
Caméléon Jackets are visual interpretations of the structures and patterns that exist in nature. Bridging the gap between space and time through what we wear, the intricately dyed fabrics are representative of natural forms as well as the diverse realities that surrounds us.
Our original Caméléon pieces are 100% handmade with ethically sourced African inspired prints.
A Bridge Between Worlds...
I began Caméléon in order to express the many traveled paths by which we connect and harmonize seemingly different parts of ourselves. Being from Togo, West Africa and Brooklyn, New York, my pieces are expressions of combination. By merging the street style of Brooklyn with the vibrant spirit of African inspired textiles, such diverse experiences of reality, identity, and landscape, both internal and external, come alive. Together, fabric and experience create a unified canvas. And it's on and through this canvas that we find each other, and find ourselves. - Asmaa Amadou
