Elexiay is a fashion brand that highlights Nigerian craftsmanship sustainably. It was founded by Elyon Adede in 2018. Nigeria is blessed with rich history, heritage and craftsmanship which Elexiay explores, focusing majorly on crochet and knits. Crochet is an ancient skill which has been confined for years to certain garments. At Elexiay, we’re redefining crochet from being known as ‘grandma’s clothing’. Using knowledge passed down from generation to generation, we’re skillfully making clothes without machines with the aim of producing clothes that cause little to no harm to the environment. All our crochet pieces are handmade and recyclable.
"Our crochet pieces are made in Nigeria by the hands of female sartorially advanced crocheters. We believe in the creation of jobs locally and the empowerment of women" - Elyon Adede
Our knits are made in Europe and Asia.
