An androgynous brand in Nigeria known for its innovative approach to knitwear, a category largely overlooked in contemporary African fashion; therefore ripe for experimentation. The brand explores luxury through a quirky and artsy design aesthetic, enveloped with an undertone of spiritual consciousness. Founded by Faith Oluwajimi in 2015, to create well thought out garments and objects for its performative fiction and collectible purpose. BLOKE promotes the preservation of long-established local artisanal practices, using locally sourced materials, engaging a small community of knitters, textile artists, local artisans and design groups in Nigeria working closely together in communicating our design languages and brand ethos.
