"Emeka is a black and green lifestyle enterprise aiming to create a new culture of sustainability while fighting inequality through employing local tailors in east and west Africa."
Emeka Suits is rooted in Africa and seeks to bring change to its people and communities. Emeka seeks to overcome post-colonial supply-chains and create empowerment through ownership and employment. Emeka is a black-owned business employing local tailors in East and West Africa. This is not just important to push the black narrative forward, but especially important for the actual work opportunities the fashion brand is creating for people who otherwise might not be able to sustain themselves.
Emeka’s clothing is based upon the idea of resourcefulness. The brand use’s what is already there and upcycle’s materials that otherwise would be considered waste, moving towards a more circular understanding of business and creating an awareness for the environmental impact of the clothing industry.
All in all Emeka Suits want to create clothing, visuals and stories that are unique in their aesthetics and powerful in their impact.
