As a natural overflow of the River that is Sacred Vibes Apothecary, Sacred Botanica, is a new retail and education space dedicated to growing my work as a Plant Teacher, Astrologer and Medicine Woman. I’m so excited to honor my ancestors and step forward fully in creating a space that magnifies their blessing, intent for my life, and a meeting of our desires. The Botanica is a few blocks away from the Apothecary purposefully to maintain the synergy between the two spaces.

Sibahle Collection

The Sibahle Collection is a product of Bounce Essentials Africa, founded by Caroline Hlahla and Khulile Vilakazi-Ofosu in 2016. Sibahle is a Zulu word that means “We are beautiful”. The Sibahle Collection was born from the need to encourage our black children to be comfortable in their own skin! The first 2 dolls under this collection, i.e. Nobuhle (meaning the one that represents beauty in Zulu) and Bontle (meaning beauty in Sotho) have features that resemble that of an African child. The dolls smell of vanilla and have typical 4C Afro hair. Our hope with these dolls is that they can teach our black children how to care for their own natural hair from a young age as well as grow up being affirmed and taking pride in being African! The world is diverse, with people of different races. South Africa in particular, is affectionately known as the Rainbow Nation. We want every child to grow up aware of the beautiful and rich diversity that South Africa and the world at large has to offer. We are hoping with the addition of the “Rainbow Nation” Collection, we will teach children of all races to appreciate and embrace diversity.

I am an artist living and working in Oakland, CA..I explore the power of ancient symbols and the grounding, restorative nature of ancestral craft with Sacred Knots which is a line of fiber jewelry, wallhangings and instructionals. My wallhanging designs have been featured in set design by interior design platforms such as Lulu & Georgia and my jewelry has been commissioned for ceremonial events, such as weddings. ? My book Sacred Knots: Create, Transform, and Adorn Through the Art of Knotting, published by Roost Books November 3, 2020, details my approach to knot work, offering historical knot information, craft instruction, meditative approaches, tutorials, and project ideas. I have offered knotting workshops for four years, at diverse gatherings such as craft workshop venues, birthdays, and employee events. As an artist and teacher in the craft community, facing frequent theft of my designs over the years by both crafters and corporations, I have written extensively about ethics in crafting, how artists and crafters can develop a community-grounded art practice, and how businesses can build more socially responsible models. My work culminated in Craft & Practice: Meditations on Creativity and Ethics, a booklet and a creative support group. I have also begun to offer consultation services to help businesses align with community grounded practices. I have offered consultation services to various businesses and lectured on creativity ethics at venues such as the Girl Gang Craft Summit. As an extension of my exploration in symbology and the creativity, I have developed visualization as a tool in my creative process. I have led and instructed in guided meditations as a tool for manifestation, lucid dreaming, mental/emotional balance, creativity and relaxation.

My name is Omobola (but my author name is Simisayo Brownstone), and I am the CEO and founder of Teni & Tayo Creations. We produce toys, books, apparel, workshops and more for kids with a pinch of African influence. ? ? ? Up until a few years ago, I never really thought of myself as the type to start a business. I was born and raised in Nigeria and was always surrounded by people that looked like me, but now I live in Los Angeles California and I am raising my two daughters in an area where we are a minority. As my daughters got older, they started to notice how different they looked from their friends. Even the TV shows they loved so much lacked representation. I wanted to reassure them that they were beautiful just the way they are, so I began to be more deliberate about the things I bought for them. I wanted to surround them with books, toys and more that represented their beauty and culture, but there weren’t a lot of good options available. And when I tried to find representation in the things my daughters were particularly interested in – things like princesses, fairies and superheroes – it was even harder to find options. That’s when I decided to start something on my own, and that’s how my first character, Feyi Fay, was born. Feyi Fay is a Nigerian superhero fairy who travels the world helping kids solve their everyday problems from bullying to making friends. I later added a character called Captain Nosa to represent the boys. ? ? ? My goal with Teni & Tayo creations is to create a wide range of everyday products for kids, from pencil cases to underwear, and maybe even a TV show one day! I hope that these products appeal to children from all backgrounds and ethnic groups, while at the same time allowing black and African children to feel more seen, empowered, handsome, proud and eager to embrace their natural beauty.
