PART OF OUR YOUNG, GIFTED & BLACK CAMPAIGNFounder, Theodora Adjepong is a British born and London based textile designer of Ghanaian heritage. Theodora's design philosophy and inspirations are taken from the blends her African and British roots when creating art and prints; taking inspiration from cross cultural and traditional colourful ,quirky pop art style work and reformulating them into fresh and quirky bold prints that promote unique character and personality through interiors, fashion and art.
Theodora completed a four year degree at the University of the Creative Arts where she studied Fashion, Promotion, and Imagery. During her studies she developed a passion for textile design, traditional, and digital printing.
She decided to create a project based on old African prints and adding a bespoke and new touch thus forming the premise and springboard to the Quirky Diamond Brand.

The Queen Nefertiti print was created in 2019, It is part of the New Africa collection I am still working on, In regards to this print I wanted to design a strong beautiful queen using black and white makes this bold and stands out like the woman in the illustration. I wanted this piece to be striking just like the beauty of a self assured woman who knows herself , so that wherever this piece is placed around the house amongst or alone from other questions it will for sure stand out! This print was hand drawn in power and digitised on CAD.

E&F predominantly work with a factory in Guangzhou, China. Our factory is owned by a lady called Ashley and her husband Simon. After we've designed the pieces in our heads we will fly out to Guangzhou to choose fabrics and meet with Ashley who we will tell about our collection idea. We talk what didn't go so well last collection and what went great. After a cup of coffee and a chat Ashley will take us around the fabric markets in search of newness. We're super lucky that we get to work with a really forward thinking factory as she always wants to show us the new production methods and is up to speed on greener efforts to be more sustainable across the world. We're working to being alot more sustainble this year and have made actions to work with recyclable material where possible and long may this continue. The factory we work with is really important to us and Ashley's factory is Sedex certified, which stands for Supplier Ethical Data Exchange. We've got a lot of work to do to improve E&F's footprint but we will continue to improve wherever possible. We've ensured that everything is fuly vegan and we're striving to try and eridicate any single use plastic.
The SMETA Sedex audit content comprises of 14 codes:
Management systems and code implementation

We are working on reducing plastic across the company as much as possible, this has started with re-usable mailing bags and will be moving into using compostable mailing bags in 2021.
We are also trying to work with recycled fabrics as much as possible to heavily reduce our footprint. All of our clothing and dye's used in our clothing are vegan and we're super personally passionate about the future of the sustainability of our company. We're far from perfect at the moment but we are always working on it and will be sure to keep you updated here.
