Born in the depths of central Johannesburg in 2009, Babatunde has grown from a headwear experiment into a concept brand. From what began as a 5 hat and 5 cap experiment, the brand has moved into a space of creative optimism/freedom with new exciting products taking Babatunde to adolescence.
With the goal of being a global brand, Babatunde fuses African colours and prints with Western Shapes. The prints represent the uniqueness of each human being. The colours embody the future. And the shapes express the vision and structure of success and prosperity.
Babatunde stands for strong African Values and the progression of Africa through Afrocentrism. Each product is unique due to fabric cuts as well as limited prints. Check out www.babatunde.co.za or facebook - babatunde styles- for more info.
The word Babatunde is a Yoruba (Nigerian) name. Translated the word means "the father returns". Babatunde stands for all that is truly African and promoting strong family values. We at Babatunde urge the father-figures to return to Africa.
Respect yourself and those around you and make decisions that benefit Africa. It is up to us as Africans to lift the continent. All of the products are proudly handmade in South Africa from African fabrics. Proudly African!
