What does nkịtị mean?
The word nkịtị originates from the Igbo tribe of Nigeria and means "normal" or "ordinary". It captures the essence of our brand - to make African print and everyday thing for all of life's event. You can read more about the naming of our brand here.
This idea came to us around the time we were getting married in August 2018. We were looking for casual ready-made African clothing for our bridal party but couldn't find anything "simple". We realised that most of our African clothes were custom-made occasion wear; usually dramatic and quite expensive, especially in the diaspora.
Fast-forward a few months later, we thought we'd actually do something about this and create our own designs.
And so, Nkịtị was born - 'to make African print an everyday thing'
