This New Headwrap Collection From Fanm Djanm Is a Breath of Fresh Air

Fanm Djanm's new collection, 'Sunday Morning Light,' celebrates the beauty of womanhood in the most effortless way.

Fanm Djanm, a leading headwrap and lifestyle brand, shares their newest collection with OkayAfrica to celebrate their third anniversary of empowering and inspiring women to live boldly.


Meaning "strong woman" in Haitian Kreyol, Famn Djanm prides itself of their handmade headwraps made locally in Harlem, where they enforce a zero waste policy via reusing and recycling of fabric. They also support international wholesalers and local entrepreneurs from various African countries with their hand-picked fabrics.

The collection's editorial, Sunday Morning Light, gives us all things effortless black girl magic and the team tells us more about the inspiration when they state:

Sunday Morning Light was inspired by the inherent beauty and softness of womanhood. Paola Mathé, founder of Fanm Djanm, often creates images that teeter between realistic and whimsical, dream-like scenarios; her most recent project, Sunday Morning Light, follows suit. Teacups filled with rose petals, brightly colored macaroons, heart-shaped stickers, and pastels are only a few of the magical pieces that comprise this celebration of womanhood.

Take a look at our favorite images from the editorial, photographed by Mathé, below.

Let Jojo Abot's New Afrofuturistic Video Hypnotize You

The Ghanaian artist releases the new video for "Nye VeVe SeSe," an entirely iPhone-recorded track.

Jojo Abot is rounding out a strong year which has seen her tour South Africa, release the NGIWUNKULUNKULU EP and work with institutions like the New Museum, Red Bull Sound Select and MoMA on her art and performances.

Jojo is now sharing her latest music video for "Nye VeVe SeSe," a song featured on her iPhone-only production project, Diary Of A Traveler.

"Nye Veve Sese is an invitation to let go of the burden of pain and suffering that keeps us from becoming our best and greatest selves," a statement from Jojo's team reads. "Asking the question of why pain is pleasurable to both the one in pain and the source of the pain. Often time the two being one and the same."
