There are 13.1 million tons of textiles trashed each year. Sadly, this figure is just one reminder of the disposable lifestyles embraced by so many. Poorly constructed garments, while cheaper to the consumer upfront, are more costly in the long-term both in human life and environmental impact. The garments are so inexpensive that it's become a consumer norm to forgo proper care or repair and instead simply trash garments after their quick life-cycles come to an end.
At Afrobeatnik, we want to make our possessions precious again by providing an affordable alternative to status-quo consumerism. We offer one-of-a-kind vintage pieces and upcycled items handmade by our artisan team.
