ASATI is proudly African. The name ASATI is inspired by the Kalabaris in Rivers State, Nigeria. It means “Be Stylish” or “Make Yanga”, derived from the popular Kalabari saying “asatibo igbigi fa bala-a” and it is translated as “the style loving person doesn’t mind money spent on it”.
Special thanks to our customers who had so much faith in us to pre-order their shirts, our team and amiable friends who made this happen.
