OBA is a Yoruba name that was used to refer to “kings” or “rulers” in Yorubaland. The purple fabric of the OBA shirt gives off royalty vibes. The purple ankara fabric used on the collar and pocket were sourced by our founder @teshie.ogallo from Balogun Market in Lagos, Nigeria. The lightweight cotton fabric used to produce this shirt is perfect for hot humid weather like that of Lagos or coastal regions of Kenya as it keeps you cool yet still looking royal and stylish throughout the day.
Touted for its breathability, the lightweight shirt was processed from pure cotton. The simple yet complex custom print is inspired by Moshions’ 2019 Inkingi Collection. The exposed thread trail adds to the beauty of the piece, giving a glimpse of technique that the team pursued when bringing the shirt to life.
HASANI means “Handsome” in Swahili and this is exactly the vibe our handsome model @trevoroisebe is oozing off. The HASANI shirt is made with a thick beautiful orange polyester cotton fabric and the collar and pocket have touches of kanga print fabric sourced from Mombasa, Kenya
A seamless blend of traditional and modern artistry, manifested in hand-engineered Umuraza beadwork and creative driven production. The shirt is a tribute to Rwanda’s cultural motifs graciously woven into a contemporary unit.
Classic Men’s Shirt. I named this the Imperial Zebra , which is one of the three species of the Zebra. The imperial Zebra is found in Kenya and is the largest in size and most threatened of the three species. It is distinguished by its unique stripes, which are as distinctive as human fingerprints.
