Get to know us better.

Introducing Batuo, our African fashion brand that draws its name from the Bayangi dialect in Cameroon, where it means ‘Ashes Fire’. This powerful force rising from the ashes is symbolic of our passion for reigniting the flame of African creativity and originality. We believe in the immense potential of this cultural heritage and founded Batuo to inspire and empower individuals who share our vision. Our brand celebrates the diversity, beauty, and vibrancy of African art and culture. Join us in our mission to light the way for a new era of creativity and innovation, and to showcase the richness of the African spirit.
Our brand was born from the need for representation for designers and creatives from diverse backgrounds in the fashion industry. We recognized the importance of creating a safe space for creative expression, and we set out to create a brand that would do just that.
