About Us

Our mission is to provide children of all heritage with classic, fun and high quality African inspired clothing.

Our clothes promote self confidence and celebrate Africa's rich culture and heritage. We believe that every child, irrespective of heritage, deserves to be proud of who they are, where they come from and what they wear. 

Every piece of clothing is specially designed and can be worn in any setting and accessorised to your personal style and preference. They are handmade with love by carefully sourced African artisans. Whether it’s a special occasion or casual wear, our clothes are sure to make your little one feel like a king or queen.

Our goal is to become the go-to store for ready-to-wear African inspired kids clothing and to provide our customers with the best possible quality and customer experience. 

Whether you are African or just love the prints; give us a try and thank you for supporting our store!

We are a UK based family with a love for African fashion and prints. 

Our brand ‘Ari & Kai’ which is coined from our children’s names, was born out of the challenges we experienced with sourcing African clothes for them. 

We wanted to expose them to the heritage, pride and beauty in our culture through our amazing clothes but struggled to find children’s ready-to-wear African prints here in the UK. We had to resort to tailor-made options that were time consuming, limited in quality and didn’t provide value for money. Unsurprisingly, this was a common experience amongst our friends and extended families that wanted the same for their little ones.

This inspired the creation of the brand you see today, which beyond our needs, is intended to provide access to off-the-shelf quality african kids clothes to other families, parents, caregivers, grandparents, aunties and uncles!
