Cynthia Abila

Cynthia Abila is an eponymous brand created by Cynthia Otiyo-Abila founded in 2016. Cynthia Abila is passionate about African cultures and story telling. She interprets these wonderful traditions through her pieces by reinventing them as modern silhouettes made for the traveling woman. Based in Nigeria, we inspire locally, design, source and produce materials by engaging artisans across the country. In doing so, we also provide vital work opportunities and essential training to local communities. With the adoption of flexible work policies, women represent 70% of the work force, which enables them support their families.Our mission is to display the timeless nature of African heritage and its application to the aesthetics of modern clothing.
