“My vision in designing these luxury Tribal eyewear stems deep in the roots of the cultural significance of expressing ourselves artistically through this ancient creativity our ancestors practiced in various parts of Africa, and even carrying it along to the Diaspora— whereby even the different colors used in painting on ourselves alone had great meanings behind them. For example, the white paint used to make patterns on our faces signifies hope, purity and light in most cultures, while the yellow signifies joy, energy and warmth.
What triggered my thoughts in doing this is the social idea of us being able to read the moods of people based on the color of their eyewear so that we know how to approach respectfully.
In preserving the Art of Tribal make-up through fashion whiles acknowledging other tribes who have specific cultural art designs on faces, the Orijin Tribal eyewear also comes with Tribal Makeup kit for us to express our culture artistically.
I pay homage to my Zulu and Xhosa tribe South Africa, my Maasai Tribe of Tanzania and Kenya, my Karo tribe of Ethiopia, my Kru of Liberia and Ivory Coast, my Igbo and Yoruba of Nigeria, my Ashanti and Ga tribes of Ghana, my Bororo tribe of Niger and many Tribes including those outside of Africa, inspired by our African art and culture, respectfully.
May this evolution not only be a fashion statement but also a cultural and social statement building an Orijin Tribe of unity, love, peace and pride, whiles preserving our heritage in Style.
