The Returnee Collection

The bold and colorful Returnee collection is the perfect addition to the wardrobe of the woman who wishes to express herself without saying anything. 2019 marks the 400th anniversary of the first slave ship departing the African borders for the Western shores and Melapteh recognizes the numerous Africans of origin across the globe and their quest to stay in touch with their roots. With The Returnee collection, they are that much closer to their origins thanks to the authentic fabrics sourced from across Africa; including well-known prints such as Bogolan (Mali) and Kente (Ghana) as well as prints native to Cameroon such as Toghu. Mixtures of fabrics, textures and prints is a common theme in this collection as neoprene is introduced into a number of pieces to add structure, fluid movement and a more flattering fit to key pieces. Whether or not you can make it to “The Motherland” this year, you can proudly represent wherever you originate from with a piece from this collection. “The Returnee” collection is available in sizes ranging from X-small to 4XL.
