The name and the logo
Mayasi is the name of street in Congo Brazzaville, Makelekele neighbourhood, where cofounder S. Boukadia spent his childhood. The name comes from a freedom fighter who resisted colonialism and has development heart.
Our logo has been inspired from the ghanean adinkra “Woforo dua pa a” , which is a symbol of support, cooperation and encouragement.
Through this name and logo we mean that our focus is to be a source of support for the development of African fashion.
A new journey into Online African Fashion with Mayasi
In Africa everything has a meaning. Everything speaks of spiritual values as God has given to each one of us the gift to name things. In Africa, patterns on African fabric like kente or ankara have the same value as words. Each pattern speaks of different things. For that reason each garment is unique. As we like to say at Mayasi, African Designers saw a delicate poetry, utter tales in stitches.
A search for outstanding African Designers
Mayasi is the story of a search. In our search of talented African designers, we came across outstanding creators who dedicate themselves into giving a true meaning to their creations. We decided to create Mayasi, an online African fashion retailer to bring you in contact with talented african designers of African women fashion and African men fashion.
