The United States of Africa Passport Cover in Black Leather is our visionary design with a purpose of bridging our Identity and spreading more Love, Unity and Pride amongst us-- A lineage to our roots of life; A reminder of us knowing that no matter where we were born, ‘Africa is born in us’, -- and that's our True Citizenship or in a better word our 'ORIJINSHIP'
Size: 14cm x10cm x1cm
Material: Your Passport cover is crafted in the highest top-quality natural leather in the world know as Crazy Horse leather, which is made from 100% full-grain cowhide.
We chose Crazy Horse leather for its unique characteristics that have been recognized for centuries- Characteristics of its beauty, its toughness, natural strength, resilience and durability. Wait! Isn't that the description of our Motherland, Africa? Isn’t that the description of you, her child?
They say with age comes beauty and so with age your hand crafted raw vintage passport cover will also get more beautiful with unique scratches indenting moments and experiences-revealing a unique patina reminding you of all your unforgettable stories shared together in you travels.
"I am not African because I was born in Africa but because Africa was born in me".~Kwame Nkrumah
I can't count how many times I have read this quote in my lifetime, but it always hits me like the first time I ever saw it. This Passport cover is very personal, as my dying desire is to connect the world together and make it a better place but more importantly for me, Connecting Africa and the Diaspora together as global Citizens of Africa — this has been my purpose long before fashion.
“I don’t believe in an African dream without the Diaspora being a part of the AFRICA Dream.” - Archyn Orijin
Not to be political but it can also open up the visible and invisible borders, creating more opportunities for advancements mirroring the visions that Kwame Nkrumah, Marcus Garvey, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X, Nelson Mandela, Toni Morrison, Harriet Tubman, Madam C.J Walker, Sojourner Truth, Rosa Parks, Maya Angelou and what many of our Black Star ancestors would hope to see in our day and age, and what I hope has them celebrating in the Skies as they see the legacy they fought for us to have.
I pray the United states of Africa passport cover paves way for a needed conversation beyond Orijin Culture’s fashion brand with an amplifying and unifying message from our ancestors to all of us as African descendants worldwide no matter our destination.
In my dream, the “Africa Dream” is Africa and the Diaspora together as one AFRICA.
