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.
This will be the warm-weather edition of our Afro-Pop Sip and Shop! Spend the afternoon with us dancing to Afrobeats, eating jollof, quenching your thirst, and checking out the newest items from some of your favorite black women-owned brands in the Bay Area. Watch out for announcements about our exclusive offers and make sure to RSVP early to secure a raffle ticket to win one of the many event giveaways. We hope to see you there!
