Why you'll love Kemetic Collective's apparel
Founder Zainab Jaye spent much of her upbringing travelling from the UK to her parents country The Gambia. Anyone who has experienced Africa will see how boldly its culture and history is expressed in its textiles, music and arts and crafts.
This exposure left Zainab with a deep appreciation and understanding for the way clothing can be used as a form of self expression and story telling. Kemetic Yoga sciences date back in Africa 10,000 - 20,000 years ago. Physical evidence of the practice of yoga in Africa can be found on ancients texts and hieroglyphics on ancient Kemetic Society.
In 2018 Zainab began working with family and locals back home in The Gambia to create a range of high quality yoga wear that reflected the vibrancy and spirituality of Africa.
Working collaboratively and fairly with designers and creators in The Gambia to design the prints, Kemetic Collective's long term goals are to to bring 100% of the production and manufacturing to the African continent - helping to boost the economy in communities with limited financial opportunity.
