ABOUT AFROBEATNIK

Afrobeatnik is a retailer of consciously curated vintage clothing and handmade goods. We believe there is beauty in diversity– old and young, black and white, big and small, and all in-between.

Challengers of the status quo, we seek to address the ever-clear misrepresentation of beauty and exclusivity in mainstream media. A portion of profits will help fund the production of film shorts that feature women who are historically underrepresented and falsely portrayed in media.

Afrobeatnik celebrates the diversity of women and clothing with a collection of carefully curated vintage and upcycled fashion spanning time periods, cultures, and styles.

Our collection is sourced from estates, consigners, designers, and artisans throughout the world.

We launch in January 2014.
