Emerging textile brand, Bolakoka on November 23, 2016 unveiled its Afrocentric label – FABRIKANA. It was a huge honour for our business to launch its very much desired product line at the Entrepreneurship Summit organised by the Franco-Nigerian Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
Fabrikana presents African Textiles in jackets, shirts, tops, shorts, skirts, bags, purses and a variety of accessories from as low as N500. Right from 2014, we kept getting the nudge to spread our tentacles beyond our then business umbrella- Aso Ebi. We were very afraid and we wanted it to be perfect. We did it anyway!
African textiles have been celebrated by Africans over the years and the art has been cherished by the rest of the world. Taking African Textiles manistream have the added benefit of being expressed in diverse fashion styles and not only as special attires prepared for celebrations and festivals. Fabrikana portrays African Textiles in diverse ways and purposes. These textiles are breathable, durable, wearable, which encourages continuous use over a long period of time.
Some of the feedback received were;
“Do it afraid…proud of you” said Bukky Bello-Asheinde of Bellafricana
“Well Done” said Bioye Amodu and Bukola of Freesia Foodies
“Awesome” said Joy Ejekwuife
“That handshake saying ‘welcome’, we are taking you on a global level” said Bisi Sotunde of Busy Bee Events
We are very grateful to all lovers, supporters and promoters of the brand for the out pour of love.
