About Us


UrbanAfriq was founded by Prince Gbeku, with the goal of making traditional, authentic African designs easily accessible to everyone while simultaneously uplifting the economy and local communities in Ghana.

As a college student involved in the African student association, Prince searched high and low for traditional African wear, but discovered that the few available were of inferior quality and made in non-African countries, without the unique taste, craftsmanship, and impeccable fit that authentic African designs possess. From this dilemma, a full-fledged company and social enterprise was born.

After just a few years of operation, we now own a dedicated factory in Ghana and actively train, equip, and employ local talent to produce beautiful, authentic African apparel. Our clothing is custom-tailored to your unique measurements, meaning each piece purchased is 1/1 and fits you (and just you) perfectly.

We embrace the traditionally modern, manifested in all of our creations. With each piece, the richness of African culture is married with modern, style-conscious designs to create clothing for every occasion. Whether you're having a lively night out or tackling the busy day-to-day, UrbanAfriq holds the key to eye-catching, worldly sophistication, admired by all.


We source the highest-quality, premium materials for all of our pieces. After intensive in-house wear testing, our clothing currently pulls from these four core materials: Suiting Fabric, African Wax Print, Shaking Fabric, and Chiffon. Which material(s) are used depends on the intended style and fit of the piece – for example, authentic African Wax Print yields a stiffer, more fitted look that accentuates your silhouette. We strive to provide options for every look and occasion, and launch new styles every season. Stay up to date on the design process and new drops by subscribing to our newsletter or following us on Instagram.
