ARTS, CULTURE & ENTERTAINMENT - ArtSHOPPING & SPECIALTY RETAIL - Retail (General)
Our brand, Batuo Inc., takes its name from the Bayangi dialect in Cameroon, where it means 'Ashes Fire', the powerful force that rises from the ashes. This name symbolizes our passion for reigniting the flame of African creativity and originality, and our belief in the promise and potential of this rich cultural heritage.
We founded Batuo to inspire and empower individuals who share our vision, and to create a brand that celebrates the diversity, beauty, and vibrancy of African art and culture innovation. And to showcase the richness of the African spirit.
Our brand was founded with a mission to fill a gap in the fashion industry: the lack of representation for designers and creatives from diverse backgrounds, and the vision to be the standard-bearer for African creativity & originality.
