Covered in prints and patterns directly inspired by the African diaspora, our shorts are the perfect piece to help you handle the heat. Made of 100% cotton and featuring a 7” inseam with a comfortable elastic waist, our drawstring shorts provide you an excellent way to stay cool this summer.


This pattern is inspired by Bogolanfini (or mud cloth), a handmade Malian cotton fabric dyed with fermented mud that dates back to the 12th century. Down to the traditional color pattern, this black and white design is one of our most popular for a reason.

Beyond being timeless, the symmetry of its markings give it a near-seamless look that has found its place as a staple in countless closets.


These work with almost any color, but, as a general rule, picking a third complementary color anywhere on the spectrum will really help elevate these beyond your average pair of shorts.

Pair these with a clean white tee, a pink or teal sneaker, and your favorite gold accessories, and you’ll have an outfit that would make anyone jealous.
