AmaniDC

An African Fair Trade Boutique in Washington, DC

AmaniDC Style is Newsworthy

We’re so proud of our partners, One Mango Tree, and their founder Halle Butvin who was recently featured in the Express paper (looking stylish in jewelry by Amani ya Juu: our spike bone necklace and bracelet, available in the AmaniDC shop). Go Halle!

Halle Butvin-Founder of One Mango Tree

halle
“Her job: Owner, One Mango Tree (a fair-trade clothing company selling Ugandan-made goods, onemangotree.com), and a senior advisor in the Smithsonian’s Office of International Relations
Her style: Butvin (shown in her home office with her dog, Hank), frequently travels to Africa to oversee her clothing line, and this year, to help stock the Smithsonian Folklife Festival’s marketplace. “I love loose, flowy blouses paired with skinny pants or tucked into a pencil skirt,” Butvin says. And this ethical fashionista usually sports a funky accessory or two picked up while globe-trotting. “It’s often a big cuff or an artisan-made necklace,” she says.
She’s wearing: Tory Burch “Nicole” skirt and DV by Dolce Vita booties ($295 and $135, Bloomingdale’s, 5300 Western Ave., Chevy Chase, Md.; 240-744-3700); African bone bracelets and necklace ($18-$20 and $53, Amani ya Juu, 3166 Mt. Pleasant St. NW; 202-536-5303) and Yoana Baraschi blouse ($218, Proper Topper).”
