Five Reasons Why Men Should Try "African" Designs

1. It's PLAYFUL

Our research suggests that men enjoy something with fun and playful elements. It may come from nostalgic childhood memories, favorite toys, comics, and movies (Star Wars is always something.). But maybe we just like to have fun! There is always a little kid inside us. See the motif of the African mask! It's playful and joyful! (And we don't blame you if this reminds you of R2-D2.)

2. It's UNIQUE

Our male customers tend to look for something uncommon instead of just following the trends. African designs often have a unique combination of colors and shapes that set them apart from other types of designs.

3. It's ORGANIC

The inspirations for African designs can be found in the nature: motherland, plants, animals, oceans and so on. Inspiration from nature makes the colors and shapes of African designs more organic, which can give you a look that is at once relaxed and wild.
