ABOUT Kaima Designs
Kaima Designs started off in the fall of 2017 as an online African-inspired trendsetting clothing brand that helps its clients re-define the concept of true beauty - adventurous, bold, unique, socially responsive and responsible. In September 2018, Kaima Designs incorporated men’s fashion into its product line as it continues to create exceptional designs by adapting African wax prints to contemporary styles to produce unique apparel. In 2019, we launched Kaima kids which paved way for our signature face masks and accessories in 2020.
Our designs portray the uniqueness, boldness, tenacity, resilience, and strength of the individual. Each design is intricately woven with passion and determination which is reflective of our values.
Introducing a new experience to fashion
Our online store offers first-rate products and exceptional customer service to shoppers from the comfort of their own homes. We’re a business made up of innovators with the drive and resources to constantly update and improve the online shopping experience for our clients and visitors.
Kaima = In God We Trust
Kaima Designs is unique in many ways. The name 'Kaima' is short for 'Sochikaima' (an eastern Nigerian name) which means 'In God we trust.' However, for our fashion brand, it epitomizes hope for the African child.
Kaima Designs and Corporate Social Responsibility (CRS)
Our tagline ‘Beauty Redefined’ enunciates an innovative fashion brand with a purpose. Kaima redefines beauty by harnessing the inner beauty of an individual's generosity and compassion in the pursuit of a noble cause.
Kaima Designs adopts a two-prong approach to its CRS - Support girl-child education in Africa and assist women in Canada's priority neighbourhoods to lead independent and fulfilling lives.
In support of girl-child education, a school uniform is donated to a girl-child in need for every apparel sold. This is aimed at encouraging more girls in Africa to enrol in schools and complete their K-12 education. It is a means of empowering girls to break free from the cycle of poverty which increases their vulnerability to abuse of all forms including child labor and forced early marriages.
In addition to providing uniforms, a cause which Kaima Designs championed in 2018, school supplies will be donated annually to children in public schools through partner organizations in Africa.
Women Empowerment Program
Many women in priority neighborhoods are faced with a myriad of crises. Most of them have been directly or indirectly affected by poverty, addiction, abuse, and illnesses of varying degrees and forms. Our goal is to provide interventions necessary to help them restore their dignity and independence.
It is a known fact that strong and free women raise healthy children, run functional homes, pursue career paths, establish businesses and ultimately build a better society.
For these reasons, Kaima Designs is committed to partnering with other individuals, businesses and organizations towards showcasing annual fashion shows in support of empowerment programs for women in need.
To be the clothing brand of choice for ethnic enthusiasts and today's trendy families.
Helping more families discover the power of their uniqueness through affordable and readily available apparel.
