Berbere Bògò Short Sleeve Bodysuit


*This item is a pre-order. Anticipated ship date is late May 2022.

About the Print:

Our Bògò collection was inspired by bògòlanfini (meaning "mud cloth" in the Bambara language), a handmade Malian cotton fabric traditionally dyed with fermented mud. Bògòlanfini holds and important place in traditional Malian culture - it is worn by hunters as camouflage, protection and as a badge of status. Women are wrapped in the fabric after they enter adulthood and right after giving birth. Patterns in bògòlanfini fabrics have various cultural meanings, depicting mythological concepts, proverbs and historical events. We’ve named this design “Bògò” which means “earth" or "mud" in Bambara. This Berbere Bògò is a bright re-coloring of our original best-selling print.

About the Style:

Our short sleeve bodysuits are sure to be a staple in your baby’s closet. Made from organic cotton, these bodysuits are comfortable, soft and safe for your baby’s skin. Pair them with matching pants, shorts in a coordinating color, or let baby wear them solo on particularly hot days. Snap closure makes for easy diaper changes.

lovely color, and fit!


I love the color, print, and the story about the print! This is one of the multiple items that I purchased. Like all the other clothing pieces, this bodysuit is so soft and well made. My baby boy wears it regularly.

Cute Culturally Inspired Peices

When I found out we were expecting our first child in September, I quickly began searching for cute clothing pieces inspired by Nigerian culture. It was a bit difficult. Luckily, I came across Ade + Ayo. Since discovering this site I have purchased two bodysuits and two pairs of pants for our little boy. Among these, the Berbere Bògò Short Sleeve Bodysuit has been my favorite due to its vibrant yellow color. I look forward to seeing our son wear it during his first months of life.
