Our Story

SlipsAfrica is a premium Leisure and Beach wear brand founded by Ola Sodipo and Baba Akande who are huge enthusiasts of the outdoors… the beach, the desert, the sun, the city and all that comes with it.
 
Our desire to create the brand was born in 2017 while on holiday back home in Lagos, Nigeria where we noticed a distinct lack of leisure clothing, except for the overpriced foreign brands that many locals could not afford.
 
The mission quickly became to launch a retail brand with the aim of improving the leisure clothing experience, with a fine mix of culture and amazing designs that capture the beauty, imagination and soul of the African continent.
 
With that, Our African Inspired Mantra was born.
 
Our goal is to create the perfect blend of a relaxed seaside lifestyle with the sophistication of city glam whilst capturing the essence of the African continent in every way, from the amazing beaches, creative people, our flair for culture and design, along with its electric vibe.
  
SlipsAfrica lives for being outdoors; in fact, our lives revolve around it and we would love nothing more than for everyone to have a piece of Africa with them always. Epitomising the expression AFRICA TO THE WORLD.
        
Our products are designed by our founders, with the help of African Designers across the globe.
