The Bombchel Factory trains and hires disadvantaged women in Liberia. Our clothes are made by women who had never even sat at a sewing machine before; they had no job skills and many could not read or write. Our ladies are now proud seamstresses who can support their families and take literacy classes.
We are changing lives–fashionably–with your help. Plus, our clothes are fierce. You are guaranteed to turn heads in our contemporary African pieces.And let’s face it, tribal prints are extremely popular but very rarely are the clothes made on the continent.Our factory is the real deal: every item is made with love in West Africa.

Archel Bernard is owner of The Bombchel Factory and Mango Rags boutique in Monrovia, Liberia. She moved to the West African country after graduating from Georgia Tech in Atlanta. She now specializes in dreaming up contemporary African clothing, training disadvantaged women to sew her designs, and helping the women to become self-sufficient.
Archel’s mission in life took a significant turn amid the deadly Ebola outbreak in Liberia. She saw the devastation in the country she loved; a country still struggling to overcome civil war. Archel decided to open a factory to help the people of her ancestral homeland to rebuild.
She named it The Bombchel Factory and herself, the Head Bombchel in Charge. Archel’s favorite Liberian food is Jollof Rice from her grandmother. Find Archel on Instagram her
