About Us

Ariike Ruban designs clothes and accessories from sustainable materials. Ari is a Nigerian born British designer whose roots are very much steeped in the textile, costume, movement and the colourful tradition of her Yoruba culture. Her grandmother who was an aso-oke textile trader and her mother a dressmaker, were her early influences. 

Ari's starting point is always the fabrics and materials she collects from local sources. These materials inform her design, and thus she creates landscapes of colours, textures and movements.  Her designs are not restricted by form.  

All her designs are conceptualised and handmade in her studio based in the heart of Brixton, South London.
