Hello, and welcome to The Hut, our home on the internet. We are a lifestyle brand based in Nairobi, Kenya which draws a lot of inspiration from the positive cultures and people of Africa. ‘Afro Fanaticism’ is a state of mind, a way of looking at life which says you are always curious and open to questioning your perceptions. It is a nod to Beginner’s Mind – that Zen term meaning having an attitude of openness, eagerness, and lack of preconceptions. We were inspired by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s TED talk about the dangers of a single Story. Afro Fanatic is a brand dedicated to painting a more complete picture of our world through our products and written and visual content. We know there are many like-minded people out there. Are you one of them?

Print Wia Collar

Presenting to you a colourful and dapper way to keep warm – our Wia collars. &nbap; The really cool (or warm) thing about these is that they provide an extra layer of warmth without the extra bulk of an additional item of clothing. They sit around your neck, and go all the way down the front of your chest covering those areas most sensitive to the cold.   Another great thing about these is that they look pretty dapper, and can be comfortably worn to the office or any other official event under a jacket. And when it gets warmer they can easily be stored away in your jacket pocket or bag.   Have a question about this product? Fill in the form in the description below.
