About Cynthia Abila

Categories: Women's apparel

Cynthia Abila is an eponymous brand created by Cynthia Otiyo-Abila in 2016. The brand is passionate about African cultures and story telling. Our collections depict traditional stories and customs displayed in a modern way and interpreted through our pieces by reinventing them as modern silhouettes made for the ethno-centric woman. Based in Nigeria, we inspire locally, design, source and produce materials by engaging artisans across the country. Our influences are rooted in the tribal ways of the South-South and Southeast Nigeria. We promote local production and the preservation of centuries old techniques of hand made fabric production. In doing so, we also provide vital work opportunities and essential training to local communities.
