Griotitude "Palm Wine" Print
Griotitude “Palm Wine” Print

Founder: Sotonye Odugbemi

Company Description: Griotitude is a family run business that creates home decor items designed by the matriarch of the family. Prints, wall mounts, and framed images populate the collection, and all designs are inspired by Sotonye’s Nigerian heritage.

What inspired you to start your company?

“My daughter was admitted to the hospital because she was struggling to breathe. Freaking out on the inside, I was desperate for a distraction. With no prior design experience, I started to create colors and patterns inspired by the cloth and culture of my childhood in Nigeria using an app I found on my phone. I noticed that the process and outcome was soothing. By the time we were discharged, I was left with a portfolio of vibrant interpretations of the vintage fabrics I had seen on my mum, grandmas and aunties.

“As I shared my designs with my friends and families I noticed a theme of people commenting on how my designs made them feel, with many suggesting that I share my designs with others by selling them. So this is me, stepping my toes in the proverbial pool to see if I can share my designs with the world.”

How is your company generating positive change?

“My designs were a source of calm during a very difficult time and my hope is that as people put my designs up on the walls of their homes, it brings them as much (if not more) peace, joy and happiness as it did for me.”

Featured Product: “Palm Wine,” £20

Product Description: “The product is a choice of my designs available as A4 prints (£20), A3 wall mounts (£25) or A3 framed (£50). Shipping for the prints are £2.99 and £6.50 for the framed designs.”

Soukra Picnic Set
Soukra Picnic Set

Founder: Pauline Eveillard

Company Description: Soukra sells home and fashion from Tunisian entrepreneurs as a way to shed a spotlight on the burgeoning community of creatives post Arab Spring. In this divisive time, they also aim to foster tolerance and mutual understanding by celebrating the creative communities of Tunisia.

How is your company generating positive change?

“Since the Arab Spring, there has been a growing entrepreneurial movement in Tunisia, with young designers using methods and materials rooted in Tunisian tradition to create exciting, modern products. I launched Soukra to raise awareness about this vibrant community of talented entrepreneurs whose creations support artisan communities across the country. I lived in Tunisia in 2005-2006 while on a Fulbright, and fell in love with the country. I return every couple of years to spend time with lifelong friends I met while living there, foster deep relationships with Tunisia’s entrepreneurs, and continue exploring the stories behind the people, places, and products of Tunisia.”

Product Description: Everything you need for an elevated picnic is included in this set packed with our favorite pieces – handblown tumblers, a beautiful olive wood serving bowl, woven serving platter, large fouta blanket, and sweet mini napkins.
