Bidhaar : The first Afro-Urban concept store in the UK
Yesterday, our team was invited to the soft launch of the very first ‘Afro-urban’ concept store in the UK.
Bidhaar, Swahili word for merchandise, is a very creative initiative which was born in the head of founder Mariam Tijani. Located in Peckham, its aim is to offer to the widest audience a ‘Premium African Experience’.
At the moment, the Afro-urban store showcases 12 African designers but it is only the beginning. Their idea is also to incorporate in that space other forms of art and creation in order to make ‘Afro-futurism’ a reality.
One of the brands that we really like is Duarra who offers its customers a beautiful range of Kuba pillows to decorate our living rooms! It is already opened to public but the official launch is on 26 October 2019.
If you are London based, you definitely do not want to miss this! If you are not London based, when you plan to visit make sure to stop there in your journey.
