This brand is our love letter to Africa. We look to immortalize her art, textiles + culture through vivid designs for women who celebrate their individuality, without apology. OYATO translated in the Yoruba language, means to be different. Our brand embodies that by showcasing womenswear fashion, both ready to wear and tailor made, by utilizing fabrics sourced and/or produced in different parts of Africa to further tell her story. We then fuse both the traditional and modern worlds that co-exist in Africa today to bring about designs that are both nostalgic and forward thinking. Since 2009, we have made it our mission to carry Africa with us in every design, every textile and every garment.
And we've done just that and more. Take a look at our Made in Nigeria Project for more information on how we work with the best artisans and makers out of West Africa to bring all this about.
