Proud To Be African Clothing is marking its first year of business with a 15% online discount (code at bottom) for all customers on all purchases!! Proud to be African Clothing has had a crazy tumultuous year since concept and start up in December 2010, to trading in July 2011, watching sales increase monthly and our brand awareness grow and grow.

During this period we were nominated for the New Business Award at the Black Business (BB) Awards in October, collaborated with rising jazz star Femi Temowo on his second album launch, with BBC3 ‘Welcome to Lagos’ star Vocal Slender, actress, singer and poet Oneness Sankara, UK hip hop legend Ty, Estelle, FOKN Bois, Nigerian grime artist and underground sensation Afrikan Boy, Nollywood producer Obi Emeleonye and many many others who have supported, appreciated and represented the brand.

Our first line of male and female T shirts and hoodys with the Proud to be African logo, Afrobeat tribute and Born in the UK Made in Africa logo, have found a strong resonance not just with people of African descent in the diaspora but with a wide variety of people, it is often surprising to us that at some of the events and markets we attend, the greatest enthusiast are actually from Asia, the middle east or Europe, who all seem to love the designs and resonate with the message.

As summer turned to autumn we branched out with sweatshirts and poloshirts and to commemorate Nigeria’s Independence Day in October a line of Proud to be Nigerian hoodys, T shirts, and sweatshirts.

Our T shirts are still made from 100% reactive dyed cotton with male crew neck style T shirts and fitted female T shirts, the baby’s and children’s clothing is made from 100% organic ethical cotton from Tanzania and fits kids from 0-18 months (for babygros) and 2 to 12 years (T shirts)
Bigger and better things are promised for next year, with more African National day tributes, more designs and more offers and events.

Proud of African will like to thank the various people who have supported the label, Ty, Afrikan Boy, Estelle, Caroline and Greg for photography, Nathaniel, Fayola, Bimpe, Ayo and Fatimatou for modelling, WOMATT, The Shrine, Afro News for the lovely article, Chinelle and Amaechi of Africa Rocks Expo, Kiskirine Events, Open the Gate Dalston, Bola Agbaje, Inua Ellams, Tayo Fatunla, 100 Black Men of London and so many others but most importantly our fans and customers
