CHANGE THE WORLD IN YOUR SLEEP WITH WALLS OF BENIN - THE BEST AND BOLDEST PJs IN THE WORLD

Walls of Benin is a made in Africa fashion company on a mission to help you live in (bold African) color and to change the world in your sleep.

Applying digital printing tech - we upgrade the centuries old technique of wax print fabric by applying the spirit of African print, to more luxurious and ecological fabrics like Silk and Tencel.

We do all this this with our partners in the amazing value chain that we have built - with the best fabric mills located in Portugal and ethical production houses in Kenya - that’s right our product creates much needed African jobs - helping you to literally change the world in your sleep.

Doing it for the culture: We are on a mission to build a global, premium, made in Africa fashion brand. Putting African culture and product on the map and in homes around the world - because - its about time! #Wakandaforever

Social Impact: Imagine: we wear clothes every - single - day. So why can’t clothes be part of the solutions we need to make the world a better place?

There are almost 200 million youths in Africa. With over 40% of its working age population between the ages of 15 and 24, it is the youngest continent in the world.

Africa needs jobs - and that is what we provide - your purchase literally creates African jobs.

Mango, pear, plantain or hourglass, we humans come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. At Walls of Benin we are for the people - we consider a wide range of body types and sizes - which means we don’t stop at size 12. Check out out size chart to see if it works for you…if we get enough feedback to increase our sizes we will do that!

Walls of Benin female product is made from a luxury silk and cotton mix, just enough cotton for added durability, but too much silk to machine wash. Digitally printed in Northern Portugal.

The male product is made from Tencel, which is a natural fibre made from botanical pulp. When blended with cotton it has a smooth silk like feel. It's a super sustainable and smart fabric which is anti-wrinkle and has moisture wicking properties.

Risks and challenges

Risk and Challenges:

We have spent time putting this together, making the right partnerships and getting the right information. As an entrepreneur my job is to solve problems and untie knots; rest assured - in any situation as always - we will work it out! Below are some problems that we have already worked out answers for (should the problem actually arise)

Port Clearance - The Kenyan government are working hard to make the process a lot smoother. There may be some unexpected delays. We are combatting this ahead of time by working with organisations like Trademark East Africa - and working at the governmental level to ensure that we have support.
You order the wrong size - and want to send the product back. We are working with DHL to ensure smooth delivery and returns. You will be able to send the product back to us for a replacement.
Quality Control - We have the right people in place to ensure that production is at the highest standard. One of our teammates has worked across East Africa managing production for brands like Edun (started by Rockstar Bono and his wife Ali Hewson - acquired by LVMH)
