Spicing up bathrooms since 1998.
In most traditional cultures, the value of “art” lies in its use. So in many ways, Nyemay is a traditionalist. As founder and head designer for Nyemay’s Collectables, she creates functional fine art. Pushing the bounds of creativity and education, the collection is distinctive because of its symbolism. Spoken like a true old soul, Nyemay hopes to ‘reconnect Africans throughout the diaspora with their collective culture’. Nyemay uses both Adinkra and Khemetic symbols to inform her clients, while beautifying their environments. Embroidery is the paintbrush. Bath towels, baby bibs. and hooded sweatshirts work as canvas. Nyemay Collectables make the mundane meaningful, the everyday —extraordinary.
Though the business began as a staple on the Brooklyn street festival scene, it promptly grew into a custom-order enterprise with products placed in New York’s most eclectic boutiques. And while widely regarded as the world’s fashion capital, the gritty grind of the big apple can wear on one’s spirit. With that said, Nyemay took a leap into the unknown — she relocated to Atlanta, Ga. Reenergized by the warm weather, southern hospitality, and natural beauty, Nyemay’s Collectables is bringing cultured couture and home decor to a fresh market. With the addition of aprons, pillow cases, placemats and crotched scarves & baby blankets, this spirited collection is poised for prominence.
