We make poetry you wear. An altar you take with you everywhere.

I really do adore making clothing. I handpick all my cloth and design with such joy, truly. It's magic bringing my ideas to life. I am passionate about designing clothing based in Nigerian aesthetics that provides huge amounts of space to express a multitude gender expressions. I source fabrics from Togo and Nigeria, have them sewn in Nigerian and shipped from the U.S. I also offer couture (custom-made) designs. Drop me a note, say hi. <3

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

Handwash or dry clean will allow your clothes to last the longest. If you use a washing machine, please use gentle soaps, do not use bleach (even colour-safe bleach) and wash on a gentle/medium cycle. For drying—line dry or hang to dry. If using a dryer, dry on a gentle, low or no heat setting. Doing this will help your cloths last and look new longer for longer.

When you handwash your clothing, feel free to put your entire back into it, lol. The materials are high quality and can withstand vigorous washing.

Your clothes are tender warriors—strong but be gentle with them. This is especially true of our silks, chiffons and laces, so please be as gentle as needed when washing these more delicate materials.
