WE DESIGN ALL OUR PRINTS...

We go beyond traditional wax, batik and Ankara native prints to spotlight symbolism, artisanal techniques and textiles from various parts of the African continent, including block printing (Shwe Shwe) South Africa and basket-weaving from (Bolgatanga) Ghana, woven fabrics such as Kenyan Kikoy. These are made more contemporary thanks to a cool colour palette and tailored silhouettes.

Signature prints include “Oju”, which represents timeless infinity, “Melon” our pop-art meets wax print and nothing encapsulates our contemporary style more than our “AfroCamo™” print.

Cool

The fit, the look, the vibe.....all work.

Can't Wait for Summer!

Enjoying my new Okun swim shorts. The fit is great and they're extremely well made. My wife loves how I look in them. I'm used to wearing board shorts, but I feel confident in these!
