About Us

Founded by Babatunde Yusuf (CEO and Founder) in 2015, Afriq Okin is hybrid company which fuses technology and fashion to bring African fashion to the world on a global scale. This fusion has given birth to the African Fashion App AfriqOkin. The brand showcases African attires, changing exhibitions, exploring elements of African fashion, textile and as well as accessories.

Afriq Okin aims not just to exhibit different African designs but to offer inspiration to a new generation who have fallen in love with the apparels the continent has to offer. As well as giving a platform to the artisans and craftsmanship which bring African fashion to life.

Africa being at the heart and the inspiration for the company, we also aim and focus on creating:

  • Talks to encourage new and growing startups across Africa and around the world.

  • Working with government departments and the private sector creating small hubs in different cities in Africa that allows young people bring their ideas to life.

  • Encouraging young people in the diaspora to return to African soil.

Inspired by African Art & heritage Afriq Okin created exceptional platform and we take pride in enthusiasm, motivation, focus also our vision and values.

AfriqOkin App

With A Desire To Preserve African Culture, The AfriqOkin App Was Born

AfriqOkin is a unique global App that helps inspire African designs, in Clothing, Accessories and promotes Tailors, Designers and Accessory makers. It is free to download on Google Play and the Apple App store.

The App inspires designs and exhibits others and their designs. It connects those who love African fashion with the artisans who can create the designs and styles they want wherever they are in the world.

Whilst the app offers an easy-access service for those passionate about African fashion, it is also a hub for fashion entrepreneurs to grow their businesses by accessing new clients.

AfriqOkin solves the problem many Africans face in not being able to readily find a design or a tailor who can create the designs desired.

You get a design directory that filters into categories showcasing the latest designs in various categories from Male, Female, Casual, Family and many more.

This platform provides tailors information and contact. This is provided when designers or tailors register as a "Tailor, Designer or Accessory Maker" rather than an “app user” on the App from Google and Apple app store. The information of the "Tailor, Designer or Accessory Maker" that registers on the app will show up within 25km from any location inputted into the search engine the world.
