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 what African Things is here to address by bring African inspired products to our everyday living; a fusion with contemporary style.
African Things designs and produces a wide range of African inspired products to all kinds of wholesale customers both in Nigeria and overseas. The company distinguish itself with its unique designs and use of African materials such as Ankara and Asoke fabric. African Things aims to change the negative image associated with African manufacture and be a symbol for high quality products while empowering Africans.
So whether you are looking for quality African products to sell at your store or unique gift items to give at your event, African Things is the partner for you. Our ultimate goal is to have our products in every household in Africa. We currently supply to over 10 retail outlets including Spar (Park ‘n’ Shop), Game, Mega Plaza, Terra Kulture, School Kit, Konga and more.
Our designs are proudly African as we work with a number of designers from across Africa, offering you with unbeatable choice and value. 70% of our product line is made here in Nigeria reducing the need for imports and dealing with an ever rising dollar exchange rate.
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. Since our start in 2013, we have taken part in African Fashion Week Nigeria and have been featured on Total Woman magazine, Complete Fashion, Star Gist, Ebony live and other popular media channels.
