Our African heritage and culture is rich in tradition, colour and excitement, but due to westernisation young people are rapidly losing touch with the African culture and heritage especially our life styles. This is why I started a company called African Things to bring African inspired products to our everyday living; a fusion with contemporary style.
African Things is a design and production company that designs and produces African inspired products focusing on fashion accessories and functional utility products using African fabric and materials. We supply wholesale to large retail stores such as Mega plaza, Prince Ebeano supermarket, and Jumia. We also supply to tourist shops in hotels such as Eko hotel and Four point.
We manufacture from a variety of factories based here in Nigeria. Over time, we also aim to set up our own factory thereby creating jobs and wealth creation.
