Afropian is a Panafrican brand focusing on Ethiopia as it connects to the rest of Africa. It is 100% Made in Africa! As a Cameroonian who calls beautiful Ethiopia home, I wanted to bring what I have gleaned from my many travels on the continent to my second home. I also wanted to share “my” Ethiopia with the rest of the continent in an innovative way: through blending the striking, centennial Habesha art with the same from the rest of the continent. I wish to be that bridge and to fuse Ethiopia with other African countries.
Afropian is also a personal take on African luxury. We build on luxurious, traditionally handcrafted textiles and other art from Ethiopia and the rest of the continent. In these days of African Renaissance, isn’t it time to focus on what has always made Africa great?
For so long, we have heard a “single story” of Africa. The danger of the single story is in letting others tell our story. I, personally, never recognize the Africa I know in the way the media portrays us. Afropian aims to contribute, however modestly, to changing the narrative around Africa by showcasing African excellence. We are rich beyond words! Let´s claim it!
