Amsterdam, Netherlands

A STORY THAT SUITS
Afriek is the composer of a unique story that begins in Rwanda, Africa. The story about your own hand tailored garment. The Amsterdam brand makes handmade items in collaboration with talented tailors from Kigali.

THE STORY
Brainy explorers Sivan and Kars met each other in the land of a thousand hills, in the midst of the city of Kigali. There they discovered the unique handmade garments made by talented tailors of this city. Afriek was born out of in-dept scientific research, African sun and a little luck. The fash- ion label and creative project between Sivan and Kars aims to apply an African state of mind to a Western wardrobe. By reimagining the African continent’s cultural heritage in a way that brings together fashion and ethnic cultures Afriek hopes to create a counter-reaction to the current conceptions about the two worlds.
