Through our designs, we seek to weave stories of heritage and artistry, crafting garments that not only adorn the body but also nourish the soul.

What we do

Our mission at Éki Kéré is to redefine fashion by showcasing the beauty of African heritage while embracing modern, eco-conscious practices.

We are committed to reducing fashion waste by crafting 70% of our products by hand, ensuring that each piece screams artistry and honors our raffia heritage.

Creative signature

Éki Kéré draws inspiration from the rich masquerade culture of The Raffia City, reflecting in its designs a tapestry of masquerade traditions such as Aboikpa-Ekpo, Abon, Ekpo-Ntok-Ayen, Eka-Ekpo, Ekôñ, and Ekpo-Iso-Iba. Embracing asymmetry and unconventionality, Éki Kéré's style is defined by its innovative use of locally sourced materials like raffia, plantain fibers, and rust-dyed fabrics. Raw materials are meticulously selected from across Africa, including looru fabric from Jos, Mali mud cloth, and Funtua fabric from the Funtua fabric mill Kanu. At the forefront of circular and sustainable fashion, Éki Kéré's Creative Director, Abasiekeme Ukanireh, spearheaded the invention of the Raffia Vest. Handwoven by artisans in Ikot Ekpene (south of Nigeria) using traditional raffia weaving methods dating back centuries, the Raffia Vest epitomizes the brand's commitment to promoting culture, preserving craftsmanship, and respecting the ecosystem by creating clothing that naturally decomposes into manure at the end of its life cycle.
