NEW PRINTS TO CELEBRATE IN STYLE

Love for Ade + Ayo
My husband cannot get over how soft and machine washable the materials are (unlike some ankara/prints we got from Nigeria)! We've received lots of compliments and people are amazed then they feel the fabric.

I am OBSESSED. My daughter looks so beautiful in this ruffle dress. And she loves to look at the patterns. It is super soft and comfy! I LOVE this business. Love getting my daughter things from here!
— Naomi G.
I adore Ade + Ayo. As a Ghanian American family we are always looking for ways to bring the African culture into our home. This shop does that for us in a small yet extremely impactful way.
— Mallory G.
I love your products and the quality and care you put into them! I will definitely be purchasing more and can't wait to see what you come out with next.

The Heart behind Ade + Ayo

Ade + Ayo is a dream of mine that was born when I was pregnant with my first baby. As a Nigerian Canadian now living in the United States, I’ve experienced a lot of changes in my life. The smell of Nigerian food, the sound of Nigerian music and the colors and patterns of traditional Nigerian clothing have made everywhere I’ve lived feel like home. My African heritage has been a source of pride and joy for me, and I wanted it to be that for my son as well.

"Beyond precious - a great gift, and a nice price point."
