Birthright GHANA ft. Kente
Behind The Drop
*10% of proceeds from The Birthright Collection will go to Birthright AFRICA to support a future Birthright Scholar's journey to Africa!
Yo! Destiney here. This drop is very personal to me because it is a legacy fulfilled. As many of you have watched our stories you may have saw our brief highlights of #thecultureddiaper in Africa.
We were selected out of thousands to go on a life-changing trip to #Ghana [FOR FREE] with Grammy-nominated Recording Artist, Jidenna. This was a special inaugural cohort through Birthright AFRICA called, 𝘛𝘩𝘦 𝘉𝘭𝘢𝘤𝘬 𝘏𝘪𝘨𝘩𝘸𝘢𝘺. A first-of-its-kind birthright trip that included scholars that were from all across the United States.
Throughout the trip I was developing my legacy of innovation by drawing a question I answered during the interview process. I was asked about my own personal legacy and this came out: “our legacy is every baby we diaper.” Sitting in that possibility, I wanted to create a diaper collection that was truly inspired by my trip! I reimagine and expanded our vision of ‘the cultured diaper.’ I landed on creating a ‘statement piece’ that ft. the imagine of Africa filled in with a native fabric of Ghana. As my connection to my roots grow the collection will grow by filling in ‘Africa’ with country-specific fabric. Our goal is to rep all 54 countries on the cultured diaper!
