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.
