Afro-luxe brand Orijin Culture, famous for creating the opulent Africa-shaped bag as a symbol to connect all African descendants, has recently introduced the new United States of Africa Passport Holder to strengthen the bond between Africa and the Diaspora as “global citizens” of Africa.
The new United States Of Africa passport holders, according to the brand’s founder and executive creative director Archyn Orijin, were created with the goal of closing the gap between Africa and the Diaspora by fostering solidarity, love, identity, and pride. She expresses, “I don’t believe in an African dream without the Diaspora being a part of the Africa Dream.”
Aside from the unique, thought-provoking design, the brand has also created a conceptual Embassy approach to shop these must-have limited edition genuine leather passport covers via an Application Form. Once you apply for your passport, you are added to the pre-launch list to be the first to secure your “citizenship”.
Archyn explains, “With the recent release of Wakanda Forever and the urge for us to connect more as one people, I pray that the United States of Africa Passport Holders become a conversation piece beyond Orijin Culture’s fashion brand – another signature item serving as a beacon with a unifying message from our ancestors to us, the descendants, reminding us of these words from Kwame Nkrumah who once said, ‘I am not African because I was born in Africa but because Africa was born in me.’”
According to Blacknews, Orijin Culture is a Philadelphia-based Afro-luxe label creating designer goods that carry the culture everywhere they go. The label offers an exclusive range of luxury leather goods, statement jewelry, symbolic eyewear, and signature apparel. Each piece celebrates the vibrance of Africa, the diaspora and the global influence of Black culture.
Orijin Culture always intends for the wearer to be the center of conversation telling their “Orijin” story in style. The brand’s name is an acronym for: Our Root Is Just Inseparable, Nonetheless, Cultivating Unity & Love Through Understanding, Reconnection, and Empowerment. It’s more than a brand. It’s a culture and a lifestyle.
