Buy African: Men’s Shorts for Summer (Yevu + Laurence Airline)

I’m not sure how I feel about this menswear trend, especially the shorter and tighter the shorts get! Lus has been threatening to get some shorts to rock this summer so, in support, I’ve collated a few, from Yevu and from Laurence Airline, that I could possibly get down with. Just maybe …

Interview with Dayo Forster, Co-Founder of Homeware Brand, Toghal (+ Give-away Every Friday in February!)

I’m delighted to share this interview with Dayo Forster, Co-Founder of Toghal, a new textile-based homeware brand. Inspired by an appreciation of the legacy of Africa’s textile heritage in the world and a love of technology, Toghal is about reimagining traditional textiles to create something iconic and fresh.

The Asilia team and I have had the great pleasure of working with Dayo to bring the brand to life. It’s been a fantastic project and the kind of challenge that we thrive on: how to create a brand that is contemporary and global, while at the same time, rooted in or inspired by a particular culture. I am also pleased to welcome Dayo as a sponsor of Afri-love!

Dayo’s story indeed exemplifies the beauty of collaboration and also, the crucial importance of preparation – research, learning, planning, and partnership. It’s a great example of how, by setting off to solve a problem you’ve experienced in your own life, you can create an enterprise that serves others.

Enjoy and make sure to check out the ‘Free Bag Friday’ give-away details, below the interview.
