About Us

- Hey Ladies -

I am Letrice, Owner of Okai Fabrics.  From the core of my heart, I want to thank you for your support. I realize that you work hard for your coins and I am grateful that you are shopping with me. 

I started Okai Fabrics in March 2016. At that time, my Ghanaian-native husband and I were married for 2 years but living on separate continents as we were waiting for immigration to allow him to join me in the states. I was battling depression because I missed him dearly and just wanted to be united with him. I woke up one morning with the idea of starting a business with my husband.By starting the business, I knew I would feel connected to him.

Whenever I would visit Ghana, I was always captivated by the bold and vibrant prints that the locals wore yet when I would return to the states, the only "African fabric" I could find would be cheap Kente-inspired fabric or fabric with elephants and giraffes on it. I wanted my people to un-learn what we are taught Africa looks like and expose its beauty to the masses so I started the company being a wholesaler of African Fabric, hence the name. I would often meet potential customers who would love the prints I offered but didn't know anyone that sewed so I taught myself how to sew. 

In April 2018, I launched the website offering my Handcrafted Headwraps and it has been well received. In July 2018, after 4 years, 4 months and 16 days, my husband joined me in the states. I resigned from my corporate job of 12 years to pursue my dream full-time which was totally a step out on faith but I believe this is only the beginning. There is so much more God and I have in store for you all.  Okai Fabrics WILL be a full clothing line and I invite you to come along for the journey.  

I want you all to remember that you are BEAUTIFUL just the way you are and you can do WHATEVER you put your mind to do.  Blessings to you!

 

With Love, 

Letrice
