Clothing Line: Badi brings a Contemporary Approcach to the Dashiki






African prints have become popular of late and even though dashikis are dope, are we sure were the print comes from or even if your dashiki is made in Africa. Come on most of them are brought from an Asian stand at a flea market (not to knock Asian's hustle).  One way to ensure prints are made in Africa is to purchase authentic clothing made using African patterns made in the Mother Land.

Subscribe to the blog to find out where to cop gear from the House of Badi.

Located in Monrovia, Liberia, the designer/rapper known as Badio brings the House of Badi with a minimalistic contemporary approach to African patterns and the responsibility that ensures Badi's prints are made in Africa.

"I started out with pieces made directly in Africa, not China, I plan to keep that promise, " says Danny about the origin of his patterns.

A promise that should be respected and is seen through-out the House of Badi's line. This line includes shirts and tank tops that can be seen on males and females alike.

"A design isn't great till its universal in all aspect of that word, I don't believe in gender based clothing, what's the point? I want you to explore your creativity, " Danny explains.

The House of Badi is designed to make the wearer feel as comfortable as they are confident that these patterns are traditional African tribal patterns.

AGirlsHipHop: What is your aesthetic?

A minimalistic contemporary approach to traditional African tribal patterns. HOUSE OF BADI's starting vision was focused on cuts completely. I didn't dabble so much into the relationship of the different patterns in relation to their shapes or colors as much as I did with modernizing the garments through cuts. This time around I'm focused on toning down my patterns, I want the experience of having to not easily identify my pieces as African inspired clothing.





AGirlsHipHop: Do you have a design team or is it just you?

Yeah, just me my coffee and notepad.

AGirlsHipHop: What is your location?

I'm currently in Monrovia Liberia.

AGirlsHipHop: Is Badi a men's line or women's line or is it gender based at all?

HOUSE OF BADI is a lifestyle brand that is subject to no orientation, religion, or color. A design isn't great till its universal in all aspect of that word, I don't believe in gender based clothing, what's the point? I want you to explore your creativity.

AGirlsHipHop: Would you consider this to be a hip-hop clothing line?


HOUSE OF BADI isn't music, she's art, she's open to your interpretation, how you identity yourself in my pieces is based on you. I've seen people in leather biker jackets with my pieces, same pieces others wore to church.
