Bélya is a fashionably fun company that designs and makes original clothing, shoes and accessories for women, men and children. We apply our artistic designs to traditional African style, colors and patterns, and then, combine this with contemporary Western fashion. The materials we use are African wax print, leather and cotton. The selection of materials is as important to us as the designs and craftsmanship. Each article is handmade giving them personalized attention ensuring detail, quality and uniqueness. The integrity, value and creativeness present in all our products is evident the moment you touch, look a little closer or try them on.
We are a socially responsible business. It is a matter of choice and pride that Bélya’s, founder, designer and owner, Aissatou SENE, purchases materials from Africa and either employs African workers or uses services in Africa to make every creation. Bélya is happy to say everything we make originates from Africa from design to materials to production. Staying true to everything we do. We promise never to limit our passion, quality or our artistic vision.
