A question we're often asked is why we don't have any men in our collection.
PSST: Some people mistake our Neema design for a man, when in actuality she was inspired by the iconic Grace Jones! But it's ok, art is subjective anyways 😉
Well, our drawings are reflections of ourselves and a plethora of other black women- the styles, the vibes, the culture, the power! Not to say that male figures aren't as inspiring, but we just haven't been drawn to it yet (pun intended).
But considering the current climate lately, we found it necessary to celebrate black men too. This is our little way of extending that love to our brothers.
That being said, we hope everyone is ok despite the realities that haunt us. Remember to care for self, limit the consumption of negative content, and don't allow the internet to tell you how to feel.
This is very much a note to ourselves too.
