"If you think you are too small to make a difference, you haven't spent a night with a mosquito.
–African Proverb. The Perfect Mirror
Our seriously cozy relaxed unisex fit hoodie is soft on the outside with our vibrant signature Ankara vintage roots print - and even softer on the inside with a brushed fleece. No really, it’s perfect for whatever, forever.
Inspired by old vintage Ankara abstract shaped patterns and how pivotal they were to culture and function; may this hooded sweatshirt remind you of how much of a difference you make.
Designer's Journal Entry:
With Suya street food sizzling on the grill; roasted corn and boli (roasted plantains) tantalizing your nose and rendering your tongue to drools, you hear:
"Oya aunty come back na". "Well done ma". "Mommy come and buy from us. We have plenty plenty."
Oh the beckons to shop and haggle along within the hustle of a bustling market
The glory of the Ankara fabric comes as a statement and a staple. Donned on high-fashion runways and a hit for wedding aso-ebis; it remains unrivaled for the hot and dusty market woman. A secure wrapper for the baby who finds comfort tied on her back.
This print is inspired by a vintage pattern from my mom's collection. I'm pretty certain she's used it to "back" or babywear many who called her mommy or aunty. And she probably wore it to the market too, where she was certainly addressed in the same manner.
