What we are about

We recognized three problems with the African fashion industry: Modernity, quality and global availability. Ocacia targets and eliminates these problems and creates a one-of-a-kind product of modern, practical, quality African clothes, which are available "off-the-shelf" yet still tailor made and full customizable to the wearers fine requirments.

  • Creating modern African clothes built on age old traditions
  • Creating sustainable markets in Africa and the African Diaspora by Africans
  • Exporting African culture making Africa a partner in globalization

We are the only African designers in the world to offer this fusion of customization where the customer creates their own unique garment.

Quality Control

Ocacia has is never content with our quality, we are always pushing the envelope of wearable African heritage in style and physical quality

  • Highest quality fabrics, usually Linen
  • High quality sewing methods and embroidery
  • Premium online support and state-of-the-art website
  • Dedicated to a smooth online experience

Our clothes take time. For example the rope (Sheriba) around the embroidery it is 200 meters of rayon thread spun together by hand. That rope takes 35 minutes to carefully trace around the embroidery which itself takes 2 hours to 8 hours depending on complexity by a highly skilled West African artist. On Hugo Boss or Vuitton shirt takes 10 minutes from fabric to packaging and cost six times the price. After the embroider we have the construction which takes 2-4 hours depending on complexity, cuffs are not made by a Pfaff machine, but the traditional chalk and scissors way.

Innovation

Today the world is becoming very mono-cultural, everyone says the samething, wears the same clothes and has white buds in their ears. Some people who want to stand out from the crowd an make an individual statement which is rooted in African heritage want to wear clothes which are unique, clothes which allow them to say "This was made in Africa." Clothes which speak to a unique fashion statement that no one else is wearing. Clothes made by the traditional tailors, personalized, customized and cut just for you! Tailored clothes customized by you  is usually the domain of the extreamly rich.
