Born with humble beginnings in Lagos, Nigeria, my early years were not the easiest because my family did not have many resources but filled the home with love.

I design our products in the U.S., while our gifted artisans manufacture in Nigeria.
This post is a tribute to the artisans who work behind the scene. Our YTPshop production process is simple but also cuts across two countries: The U.S. and Nigeria. Yinka designs all products in the U.S. and the YTPshop team sources the fabric from the open-air textile markets in Nigeria.
