Zuvaa is an online store selling
African-inspired clothing to customers globally. It was founded two
years ago by New York-based entrepreneur Kelechi Anyadiegwu.
“My vision for Zuvaa is to be more
than an African fashion marketplace,” says Anyadiegwu. “I want Zuvaa to
be synonymous with African inspired prints. So that whenever someone is
looking to buy something African Inspired they think of Zuvaa."
The brand takes pride in its ethical status by ensuring that they keep sourcing all their materials and fabrics from local traders and stockists as well as produce their products in Ghana, thus encouraging local trade and employment.
Negritude Republic is an idea that developed in distinct ways in different countries due, in part, to language, culture, and the political climate.
I wanted to create a brand that in some way would kind of embrace those diversity and celebration of shared black heritage and then work them into apparel for everyone to wear, in a similar way that brands I look up to have done. -BlackDice
