Breaking Pattern

Handmade in Hohoe, Ghana from uplifting prints by a local workshop run by Los Angeles-based designer Tina Tangalakis, each Patterned MacBook and iPad Case provides jobs and education skills to local women artisans.

This stunning collection sprung from a fortuitous meeting of like-minded women. After embarking on a volunteer teaching position to Hohoe, Tangalakis returned home with a new mission after befriending local seamstress Beatrice Agabe and discovering the beauty of the traditional textiles. Tangalakis and Agabe soon began a long and meaningful conversation that inspired early sketches for accessories and prompted the creation of their local women's workshop. Carry your 13" laptop or iPad in a traditional Tree of Life or Jellyfish print as a gorgeous reminder of the global connectivity and progress each pouch offers. Handmade of foam and cotton.

Please note, these cases have been discontinued. When they sell out they will no longer be available. Our apologies for any inconvenience.

Los Angeles-based designer Tina Tangalakis touched down in Ghana unaware of the change that would occur. As a volunteer and teacher at Happy Kids Orphanage, Tina met local seamstress Beatrice Agabe. The two quickly bonded over their shared love of design and devotion to improve the lives of others. Greatly inspired by the beauty of local fabrics and touched by the heart of the people, Tangalakis decided to begin Della, a company that would provide jobs to the local community while allowing her to access her creative skills.

It was there, in the vibrant village of Hohoe, among the scraps of fabric, rough pencil designs and long conversations between two unlikely friends, that Della was born. Each product is handmade in Beatrice's workshop by economically vulnerable Ghanaian women working under Beatrice's mentorship. The sale of every item has a positive effect on the people of Hohoe. Tina's intention behind Della is to provide jobs and education to the community, while bringing awareness of Hohoe's struggle to the Western World.
