Frequently Asked Questions

Where does the name “OLORI” come from?

Olori means “Queen” in the Yoruba language, which symbolizes every girl’s inherent worth, and an empowered woman. This underlies the vision behind the Olori brand, which is to leverage the beauty of Africa to empower women and underprivileged girls around the world.

Your purchase helps support the artisans we work with as well as providing educational support to underprivileged girls. For every bag sold, we pay for one month of tuition fees for a young girl and for every other product sold, we pay for one week of tuition fees for a long girl. Through your purchase, you give a girl the chance at a better future.
