Beauty and Heritage . . . Wrapped in One
Our Creation Story
Headwraps are a timeless expression of African culture and beauty - a bold and vibrant fashion statement for women of color.
As much as we cherish our roots, Cee Cee’s Closet’s headwraps were born out of a more practical need.
When Uchenna wanted to take better care of her curls with protective yet fashionable headwear, she couldn’t find anything in the market that reflected her personal style: bold, colorful, feminine, and fly.
But she didn’t give up!
Instead of settling for her old Ankara scarf, Uchenna and her sister Chioma connected with tailors in Nigeria.
Much to their delight, they found beautiful, colorful fabric of exquisite quality that they could never dream of finding in NYC!
They knew right away that they HAD to bring this to the women of color in the U.S - who deserved to express their heritage in stunning, authentic African headwraps just as much as their sisters in Africa!
Fast-forward four years and Cee Cee’s Closet has taken over Instagram, sold over 30,000 gorgeous headwraps and expanded into fashion-forward clothing, waistbands, and earrings.
But that’s not what makes them get out of bed every day . . .
“While we’re very proud of what we’ve accomplished, it can’t compare to the lives we are changing back in Nigeria, and here in the U.S. Our tailors have honed their skills and learned so much working with us. Today they’re able to send their kids to school, get proper healthcare, and dream of a future. THAT’S the impact we’ve always wanted for our business!” - Uchenna and Chioma
The sisters believe that ALL women have the right to be colorful, engaging, and be who they were meant to be on this earth despite the push to conform.
What lies ahead? They’re super excited to launch Cee Cee’s Home, bringing traditional African woven trays and baskets to YOUR home!
