Every Olori bag purchased pays for a month of education for a girl in Africa.
Say hello to Tomide 👋🏾 Growing up in Nigeria, she was always surrounded by traditional prints and textiles. These textiles are symbolic of roots so deep and stories so dear to her people. By incorporating African fabrics into modern design, her mission with Olori is to invite people to experience the beauty and culture of Africa.
Olori was inspired by Tomide's grandmother, who was denied an education because of her gender, but who ensured all her children got an education. Tomide is proud to carry on her legacy by making room for women and girls to thrive.
