Track Record

Quality Standards

Drawing on attention to the finest details, while standing on ancient African traditions, Ocacia is a brand with a distinctive collection for those who want to make a unique fashion statement. Handcrafted and uniquely customizable for every client. Our clothes are beautifully presented for the highest taste for all occasions.

New African Standard in Fashion

At Ocacia believe that just as Milan or Paris carry prestige, we are putting prestige around "made by Africans." We firmly believe that Africans must be at the forefront of the industry; making final goods and adding our unique aesthetic to the globalized markets. Ocacia is 100% owned by Africans from Ethiopia, SA, and the Diaspora. We own all aspects of our clothing production.

African Culture Globally

Today the world is becoming very mono-cultural, everyone wears the same clothes. However, some people want to stand out from the crowd and make an individual statement that is rooted in African heritage. And in a globalized world, people want to be able to say "This was made in Africa." by African people.

African Excellence

“Ocacia is an authentic modern African clothing business dedicated to creating a market for those looking for African clothing but at a designer label quality.
