Hello lovelies!


Want to stand out in the crowd and also have fun? I have a solution for you: DIY. Do something that reflects your spirit, your sense of style and your way of looking at the world. Internet is full of wonderful DIY-instructions… So why not sew something yourself if you can but if you don’t know how to sew, there are many other things you can make. Take your time and pick materials that you enjoy. It’s a lot of fun and when you finish you will feel a tiny bit proud that you did that….  Search for patterns/instructions from Google, Pinterest, Burda and magazines.

I made these headbands for my sister and I.

For this DIY that I found from a magazine, I used this fabulous Eki-fabric, which I absolutely love. I loved it so much that I wore it to my graduation.  Be the centre of attraction in Eki Orleans!

We offer very stunning african inspired silk fabrics here. Each print tells a unique story that gets inspiration from nature, travels and the African continent. Silk is a very luxurious natural fiber that will give something extra to the outfit. Read more about Our Africa on Silk story from here.

If you don’t want to buy anything, use something that you don’t wear anymore. For example, I’m planning to make another headband out of denim, So I just take a pair of old jeans and recycle. Perfect!


Hello fashionistas!

I’m a young Finnish-Guinean woman, who loves fashion and esthetics. This Eki-girl is based in Helsinki, Finland. The unique style of Eki-Orleans made me fall in love with the brand. The blog will be mainly about sustainable fashion, travelling, trends, make-up and of course Eki-Orleans!

Apart from fashion I like dancing, books and travelling.
