topshopkids.JPGTopshop have teamed up with the Technical and Business Education Initiative in South Africa (Tabeisa for short!) to create a collection of clothing inspired by the batik fabrics of Ghana. The dresses are made by the Women in Progress co-operative who encourage women to become self sufficient through their own businesses. The Topshop buying team travelled to Ghana to teach the seamstresses how to make the collection, which includes dresses and bags. Their girl's batik dress is £16, see after the jump for more items from the collection.
