Oya Abeó: Nigerian-Made Textiles for the Table

May 2, 2024

Recently in our inbox, from Nigerian designer Samiat Salami of ready-to-wear fashion and homewares line Oya Abeó: a collection of hand-drawn, sustainably printed textiles for the table.

About the collection: “Inspired by her childhood in Lagos, Oya Abeo draws from centuries-old Nigerian textile traditions to create modern whimsical and artful handprinted textiles that celebrate the colors, textures, and landscape of Nigeria. Our prints are created digitally in our studio in Lagos, Nigeria before they are hand-drawn and hand-dyed by Batik artists. Our culture is a never-ending source of inspiration for our prints.”

Have a look at the bright table linens on offer, for an instant ready-for-summer pick-me-up:
