About us

TILEWA is the fashion home of diversity. All our designs are a celebration of ethnic identity.

Tilewa was founded in London, UK in March 2012.

THE NAME: Tilewa is a Yoruba name which means "with origins from back home". The Yorubas are a large and culture rich tribe mostly found in the South Western part of Nigeria 🇳🇬. There are also some Yorubas in Benin Republic and Togo, as well as a significant number of African Americans whose ancestors were of the Yoruba tribe.

THE LOGO: Is a representation of cultural identity. A representation of people who sojourned from the motherland, yet look back to embrace ethnic roots.
