Center for Southern Craft & Design Pop-Up Edward Wycliff/ Mountain Kingdom Clothing

The Center for Southern Craft & Design presents Pop-Up artist, Edward Wycliff! 

Edward Wycliff is the owner and designer of Bow Shoeshoe – Mountain Kingdom Clothing, an ethical apparel company based in New Orleans, Louisiana and Lesotho. Wycliff served as a Pease Corps Volunteer in Lesotho in 2014-2015, working on an HIV/AIDS project in one of Lesotho’s most remote mountain ranges. Wycliff has been working with these communities in Lesotho to produce garments with the local fabric, focusing on a community-driven model of production. The company began producing bow ties in 2015. In an effort to pivot due to COVID-19, Wycliff began organizing teams in Lesotho, South Africa and New Orleans to produce face masks with the same vibrant textiles. Originally from Houston, Texas, Wycliff holds a B.A. in Politics from Ithaca College, an M.S. in Conflict Resolution and Governance from Universiteit van Amsterdam. He has been living between New Orleans and southern Africa for the past six years.
