TILEWA: Celebrating the Rich Tapestry of Ethnic Origins.

Our Journey
Founded in London in March 2012, Tilewa is a beacon in the world of premium fashion, illuminating the diverse stories and cultural heritage that shape our identities. Our name Tilewa is, a Yoruba word meaning "ethnic origins”. This speaks to the heart of our mission: to connect western diaspora with their roots, celebrating diverse ethnic origins.

Our Essence
The Yoruba people, primarily found in southwestern Nigeria, with a significant presence in Benin Republic, Togo, and among African Americans, are central to our story. That is the story of our birth, and where our ethnicity originates, This vibrant and culture-rich community inspires our ethos, and we proudly carry forward their legacy of cultural pride, celebrating this through contemporary fashion.

Our Logo
The Tilewa logo is more than a symbol; it's a narrative of cultural pride and identity. It represents the journey of individuals who have traversed from their motherland or fatherland, crossing continents yet carrying with them a sense of belonging and a deep-seated pride in their ethnic origins.

Our Vision
At Tilewa, we see fashion as a medium of expression and connection. Each design, each collection, is a homage to the rich, varied histories and traditions that our customers carry. Our pieces are not just garments; they are stories woven into fabric, tales of heritage and identity, crafted to resonate with the ‘souls’ of those who wear them.

Our Commitment
We are committed to crafting a space where fashion transcends boundaries and becomes a shared language of heritage and identity. Through our creations, we aim to celebrate the diverse ethnic origins that enrich our world, offering a unique fashion experience that speaks to the heart of individuality and cultural pride.
