When you think of the African nation Nigeria, what images pop in your mind? If you've never visited "Africa's Giant" then your psyche has been influenced by media portrayal: poor, corrupt, violent, etc. Yes those attributes are true, but is there any place on earth without these flaws? There's beauty, wealth, and growth flowing through the rivers and marching on the land of Nigeria. We're here to show you that, yes, with clothes.

All our clothes are Made in Nigeria. Our tailors in Benin City, Edo State, are skilled, trained, and trend-setting. 

The vibrant fabrics we use are called Ankara, unique to most west African nations. It's made of 100% cotton, comforting for Nigeria's hot temperatures.

The styles you see are meant to set you apart, so don't be surprised when you're bombarded with compliments. Just embrace it, bask in it, and of course share our information with inquisitors. 

We hope you enjoy wearing our clothes as much as we enjoy making them. If you have any questions, would like to collaborate, or simply want to chat about Nigeria, send us a message.
