The Kollektion:

Uhuru Street combines street insight and “uhuru” (freedom) a concept that is central to our creative aspiration. It is the first of a series named after various streets in Tanzania.
This collection almost exclusively features work inspired by popular culture and visual language of Tanzania, our homeland, and the place we feel most free.
Next collection, Samora Ave.
