This is our story (and yours, too).
“Just two short years ago, I had a burning desire – to craft and create unique handmade garments – inspired by Africa, fashioned from authentic fabrics, for the modern African woman.
A name came instantly – Sika’a – God’s will in Bamileke – the language of West Cameroon (my home).
And so the fashion house before you was born”.
- John Tchoudi founder of Sika'a
We are traditional African style, with a fresh, contemporary twist – and so we say (with conviction) that we are made for the modern-day African woman – in all her glory.
We celebrate and embrace the positive images of Africa – a nation of colour, creativity and culture.
There is heritage and culture in every stich – history and identity interwoven into each piece.
We are not followers (why would we be, when our African women are leaders?). This means no fad fashions, no temporary trends – in their place are timeless styles and pieces that push the boundaries of African fashion.
We are bold, we are bright – our women step out in African style, wrapped in fabrics and finishes of premium quality, and nothing less. We emphasise tailoring and an energised, eclectic use of prints and patterns – sharp silhouettes, vivid and visual fitted fabrics.
Attention to detail and the tiniest of finishing touches are key to all we do and in everything we create – from our authentic African dresses, to our contemporary take on staple pieces. With pain staking care we select suppliers and designers – among them is Vlisco – a name renowned for world-class fabrics, anchored in African tradition.
Within our collections you’ll discover the work of our talented in-house textile designer – who’s sole role is to create bespoke prints that are entirely unique to Sika'a.
Our ethics are unshakeable – grounded in a love for sustainability and a deep respect for the craftspeople who make our products possible. It’s why we manufacture exclusively in Britain - where world-leading working conditions apply.
Our carefully curated, beautifully handmade garments are made for becoming a part of your life – your everyday experiences and your courageous adventures.
Our collections were made for you – the African woman seeking something special. They are a spectacular collection of colours, prints and textures – the result of translating African history, and its many stories, into modern-day fashion.SHOP NOW
