Ama Schulman is the founder of All Very Goods, based in Washington DC. All of her designs for All Very Goods start from the belief that representation matters. She uses personal illustrations, graphic design, patterns and symbols from Africa, Asia and Europe to create products that are visual metaphors for her African American history and present experience. Her series of bandana designs uses Adinkra symbols, colors and patterns from Ghanian textiles and Haitian art, Dutch wax print fabrics, and traditional Asian and North American bandana lay-outs. Together they create a cohesive collection that speaks to adaptation, representation, and cultural evolution. Ama donates a percentage of profits to organizations that help black women creatives start businesses.
