Afriek is a Dutch clothing brand producing contemporary African print clothing in Rwanda through equal collaboration. They started in 2013 with a collection of menswear blazers made by four independent tailors in Kigali, Rwanda. Now Afriek runs its own atelier with fourteen employees, making both men’s and women’s clothes. Working with African prints instantly shows the origin of the product. The recognizability of the fabric has proven to provoke conversations. Afriek hopes to challenge the one-sided Western image of Africa, as they connect bright individuals across the globe.
