I'm the one who asks "how can we make this better?". I specialise in UX and SEO to make sure the website is vibrant, functional and easy to use.

What do we do?

We are a UK based clothing designer that specialises in designing African print clothing.

We want to make African print clothing an everyday thing. From your casual days to your milestone celebrations. Whether you're African or not, we invite you to wear the designs we’ve created.

Our vision is to create modern, high quality African Print clothing that pays homage to our ancestry. We do this by incorporating African prints, African languages and the bright colours that are characteristic of our culture into our designs.

What does nkiti mean?

Nkiti is an Igbo word that captures the essence of our brand. Making African print clothing an everyday thing - for all of life's events.

Are you curious to know more about how we named our business? Check out this article!

The word 'nkịtị' originates from the Igbo tribe of Nigeria and means “normal” or “ordinary”.

Where are we now?

Since we launched in August 2019, Team Nkiti has grown from a husband and wife duo to a team of 4, including Peace and Amy. It's been an exciting journey so far! We've partnered with Imperial College London for their annual Afro Gala event as well as launched several boutique collections.  

We are a small black-owned business that remains committed to designing quality African print clothes. We hope you find something you love!
