The Birimian rocks
Birimian’s origins stem from a paradox:
while more than 50% of diamonds and gold sold internationally come from Africa, most of the value is captured outside the continent reflecting how little local communities benefit from their contribution.
Like in the extractive industries, Africa is rich in talent, ingenuity, and creativity. African designers and creatives are another form of rough diamonds who need mining, transforming, polishing to be propelled internationally and shine worldwide.
Our mission is to transform our continent’s creatives into powerful entrepreneurs, sustainable enterprises and brands generating long-term value for the continent.
Our unique selling proposition is our ability to connect talented African designers taking their roots and inspiration from the continent with key strategic stakeholders in the global fashion and creative scene.
We have built an ecosystem of experts with significant track records in sustainable value creation working with independent labels and international brands.
Through our rich and unique network, our brands will benefit from long-term opportunities for expansion (collaboration, distribution, exposure, access to key industry events etc.).
Birimian speaks to brands that carry in their DNA and identity the culture, tradition and history of the African continent, whose cultural heritage is sublimated in its diversity and adapted to modern and contemporary codes.
