Sometimes How it all got started sounds funny and small that the story almost sound like its all lies.
"Well I started Fabric business about 2 years ago and I remembered starting with just 2 pieces.
I Had actually always had passion for it.
I was scheduled to do a shoot for a client in Kenya that portrait an African Nigeria print culture, Hence, someone introduced me to the person I bought the fabric from.
Then the thought came in like why don’t I start the business since I have passion for it .. that’s how it all started .. and from then I started traveling to other African countries to get prints own prints as I am strongly aware each country has their own prints and it’s unique."

Well to me Africa is blessed, trust me, we have so many beautiful prints that distinguish different countries, and our uniqueness towards prints is something else.. each country have their own prints that looks like their trademark, and Nigeria is the most popular home for prints.
UNIQUENESS OF EACH COUNTRY’S PRINT Is not far fetched. Africa as a continent is blessed with distinct fashion prints that gives each nation a trademark.
For example the kente of Ghana, Ankara of Nigeria etc.
