Founded in 2015 by Tunde Owolabi, Ethnik is about making Aso oke Accessible to the fashion-forward modern man and woman. Beyond accessibility and creating fashionable pieces for brand savvy trendsetter, Ethnik is about promoting culture and giving back to the community. At Ethnik, we believe that sustenance is the key to preserving our heritage. To this end, a core element of our social responsibility means we invest in our local artisans and create an enabling environment where they can continue to weave Aso oke the way it is done traditionally, a skill that is passed down through generations.
The essence of our design philosophy is to produce sustainable fashion accessories that are uniquely Afrocentric, drawing inspiration from the Yoruba culture of Nigeria and other African cultures by telling our stories to the world through patterns and colors woven into beautiful fabrics. We pay critical attention to every detail in our design and production process through excellent craftsmanship and ethical values
