Umhlaba Sleeveless Romper
About the Print:
Our Umhlaba print is inspired by ankara, a pattern and fabric style common in various parts of Africa. Ankara is seen in celebration wear, everyday wear, accessories, furniture and, more recently, fashion runways across the world. This style of fabric is known for its bright, vibrant colors and unique repeat patterns. The patterns have different cultural meanings, conveying messages to those who are gifted the fabric or see someone wearing it at an event. I’ve always loved the way I feel when wearing ankara - joyful, beautiful and connected to a greater community. Kids should feel these things too, so our ankara-inspired prints bring a traditional fabric style to comfortable kids’ clothing. We’ve named this particular print Umhlaba, the Zulu word for land, earth or soil.

Love the print on this romper! The material is great, soft and organically made! It’s super cute!
I bought this for my son's 6-month birthday photoshoot. I was accidentally sent an empty package, contacted the owner and the item was re-shipped. Unfortunately, this means that I received the order almost a week later than expected. The romper itself is beautiful, colorful and the fabric is soft. My only complaint is that it has some very loose stitching which means it will not last long. I will purchase some more items if this issue can be resolved
Great, I got 3 of this rompers and I like them all, but this print is my favorite. I get so many compliments whenever my baby wears it! The material is soft and buttery, the buttons are so cute and well sown. I was nervous about the style because my baby is tall and skinny, and a lot of rompers look baggy on her, but this one just sits perfectly, and she can crawl without getting stuck in it, like it happens with other rompers. Really really happy with my purchase.
My grandson looks so darling in this outfit. The fabric is a soft and silky texture, and the outfit is exactly the right fit. It is unique and he looks so special in it. And it washes and wears well. If only it came in adult sizes!
Our baby wore this for his naming ceremony. It is perfectly stretchy, lightweight, and so soft! We received many compliments and our little guy looked adorable!
Hi! I'm Temidayo, the mom behind Ade + Ayo. I created Ade + Ayo when I was pregnant with my son and I couldn't find children's products that would introduce him to African cultures while fitting into his everyday life. I wanted to change that so that my son, and all of our kids, can grow up with pride and respect for what Africa has to offer.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is Ade + Ayo black-owned?
Yes, Ade + Ayo is owned by a Nigerian mom - so we’re proudly black- and woman-owned!
Is it cultural appropriation for my child to use Ade + Ayo products if we’re not African or of African descent?
Great question! I created Ade + Ayo to make beautiful African design more accessible to children. I hope to spark curiosity, love and respect for the people and cultures that inspire our products. From my perspective, it’s not cultural appropriation. When you receive your Ade + Ayo pieces, it’s important that your family interacts with these items from a place of celebration and respect for the cultures and people from whom they originate. You can read more about this on our main FAQ page!
