About Us

With home in mind

Ita'i means ‘Our Cloth’ in Ebira language. We are an exclusive textile, fashion and home brand with operations in Okene, Lagos, Nigeria and New York City. It is a traditional African fabric store rooted in Ebiraland, Kogi State in central Nigeria; where the woven cloth was invented by Omeitere. Known as the mother of Itinochi (cloth made on wood), history has it that she gathered cotton and assembled a loom to start weaving while living in cave known as ‘Uteha’

NEW IDEAS

The premise for the Ita’i brand is to find a new, modern and global approach to preserving, presenting and promoting our cultural heritage through the woven cloth, while also building human capacity & industry.

CREATIVE SPIRIT

Most ethnic groups in Africa have traditional cloth or fabrics that are peculiar to them. These are mostly hand-woven on locally made looms. Through extensive research and site visits to villages and communities across West Africa, we have observed simply that today’s weavers are predominately older females above the age of 55). With modernization and urban migration, weaving sadly is fast becoming a dying culture.
