About Mate Masie Curation
Mate Masie Curation was inspired by the West African adinkra symbol, Mate Masie. This symbol represents knowledge and understanding. It simply means, "What I hear, I keep." As curators of wearable art, we travel throughout the African continent building relationships and supporting local artisans. With an offering of both traditional and contemporary African designs, our goal is to educate and spur excitement about the birthplace of humanity while dispelling negative media images that have been formed over the years. Each piece we offer has a story behind it that we hope will help to foster a deeper appreciation and connection to the cultures of the African continent.
15% of Sales In April will be Donated to Doctors Without Borders to help Victims of Cyclone Idai
Hundreds of thousands of people are in need of food, water and shelter after Cyclone Idai battered Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Malawi. As of the 30th, at least 746 people had been reported killed by the storm, the flooding it caused and heavy rains before it hit. Now cholera is spreading in Mozambique in the wake of Cyclone Idai, this is a water borne disease that can kill within HOURS. We have decided through the month of April to donate apart of our sales to Doctors Without Borders to help with the relief effort. We thank you in advance for your support!
