At House of Tayo, we have a passion for storytelling and our brand -- through both lifestyle and fashion -- provides an opportunity for us to use design, media, clothing and accessories to tell African stories. At House of Tayo, we are innovators propelled by tradition, historians that publish on cloth, and designers who combine African heritage with more contemporary designs and concepts.
House of Tayo was created out of the desire to find a unique way through which to showcase African sophistication, style and flavor through contemporary, locally-made clothing and accessories. With style influences ranging from the Motown era to traditional British tailoring, House of Tayo seeks to combine elegance and class with a strong sense of African heritage and iconography.
We are a distinctly Rwandan-born brand that works with local artisans and tailors and in doing so we support the local community by providing stable income and employment opportunities.
With its unconventional combination of colors and patterns, the brand is bold and futuristic; edgy, yet sophisticated; and reflective of the current proliferation of African arts, culture, and style on the world stage. The brand is truly authentic and homegrown, utilizing African textiles and fabrics, and produced by Rwandan tailors and artisans.
