We’ve taken this staple and perfected it for every aspect of your life. With generous side pockets and draw string trousers, our short sleeve kaftan is loose and soft.
It’s that Funtua cotton flow.
The Uniform wear Buba and Shokoto comes in two hues: sky blue and deep dark blue. Both variations from our classic indigo selection, hand dyed at the historic kofar matar dye pits in Kano. Buba and Shokoto is a heritage that belongs to every Nigerian. It’s a national heirloom that adjusts to many moments of the Nigerian experience. At the same time, it’s a cosmopolitan fit — so versatile as to travel far and fit into contemporary culture anywhere on the planet.
Going to a board meeting with fellow trustees? Wear it. Heading to the shops to pick up a few things? Wear it. Travelling and need something cool and comfortable? Ogbeni, wear it. The Buba and shokoto pairs well with your hard hat as it does your fila. For a grand ceremony or a sit down with old friends; For play with your kids and joy rides to the club — sneakers on your feet, why not?
Morning, evening, all day, all night, whoever you are, wherever you are, and whenever you are there, our uniform wear Buba and shokoto stays timeless and ready to wear. With our Buba and shokoto, we’ve created a new kind of aso ebi, a classic addition to our indigo tribe — the ultimate uniformwear.
