Orijin Culture is on a mission to create designer goods that carry the culture with unity, love, and respect.
Founder & Executive Creative Director of Orijin Culture, Archyn Orijin, sits down with ESSENCE Magazine to discuss the inspiration behind his eponymous label, how activism has fueled his creativity, and why we should all keep the continent close to our hearts.
The following is an excerpt from Archyn’s recent interview with ESSENCE: “The stories I hope to share are the rich beauty of our cultures and the true stories of our pride that do not get told often. The beauty of it all is that I’m not the storyteller, but rather our customers tell their own stories when they carry Orijin Culture. The pride exuded when they wear their Africa bags, cuffs or scarves unapologetically make statements of worth and empowerment well beyond fashion. It’s the story of us loving us.”
