Raï Somdah

Sustainable Designer

Raïssa is a young woman entrepreneur from West Africa. In 2014, she created her own brand, a line of African-inspired clothes and accessories and opened a store in the Burkinabe presidential district. The reputation and vision of the brand RAIDAH lead her to strike a partnership with the Dutch company VLISCO DUTCH who has been a great support to the brand since its foundation. She presented at fashion shows in San Francisco, Los Angeles and Hollywood. Raissa is creative, fun, very ambitious and loves teamwork.

RAIDAH said Goodbye to Fast Fashion for Slow Fashion; We resist the mantra of speed and the illusion of something new at any cost. We value quality workmanship and original fabric. All our products are handmade from the best quality fabric sourced in Africa.
