DashikTee's origin is pretty simple. Our founder, Tre Baker, wanted a fitted dashiki without a bunch of colors or patterns that he could wear in casual settings. Bright colors with loud patterns just wasn't his style. He couldn't find the dashiki he was looking for, so he designed some and DashikTees was born. Our first two DashikTees, the Garvey and the Shabazz, are those designs brought to life.
Our goal at the moment is just to see if anyone else is interested in modern, fitted dashikis, but the overall vision is to create a more modern line of tradition African clothing with sustainable fabrics (hemp, bamboo, organic cotton, etc.) and made in Africa. While we haven't been able to achieve this for the first run, we will get there quickly if there is enough interest.
