NUBIAN REINES AND WHAT WE STAND FOR.
Nubian Reines seeks to bring representation to the market for young girls of colour. I created Nubian Reines for young girls like myself, who struggle to see the beauty in their hair texture, skin colour, unique name and culture.
THE MEANING BEHIND THE NUBIAN REINES LOGO.
When creating Nubian Reines it was important the brand be represented by 3 Nubian Queens that girls could resonate with. This led to the making of (from left to right) Zhenga, Morowa and Thema . Artistically illustrated, the girls are the brand’s logo and promote black beauty in its entirety. All their names mean ‘queen’ in different African languages (South African, Ghanaian and Egyptian). Zhenga is our human calculator who loves maths and is a fashion designer. Morowa is our inventor, she’s also a painter and Thema is our author who’s multilingual.
NUBIAN REINES PRODUCTS.
Nubian Reines sells beautifully illustrated bags; the bags are ideal for both parent and child as they are reasonably priced, easy to clean, has ample space and has lumbar support for back support.
Nubian Reines also sells matching pencil cases that can be clipped to the front of our Nubian Reines bags.
WHAT WILL THE FUNDS BE USED FOR?
The funds from our ‘Back Her Business Crowdfunding’ will be used to create animated cartoons that will allow young girls to join Zhenga, Morowa and Thema on fun, eventful and educational adventures.
We will initially release the series on YouTube and our aim is to have Nubian Reines cartoons on children television networks – yes relatable animated queens for you and your little one will soon be on your screen, so please support us.
WHY SHOULD YOU FUND AND SUPPORT NUBIAN REINES?
As a child black beauty was immensely underrepresented and although I have seen some changes through the years, more still needs and can be done! Young girls of colour deserve to have their natural features and cultures highlighted in a positive way in the media, in their toys, their books, their accessories and even their clothing.
By supporting Nubian Reines you will be supporting a brand that encourages young girls of colour to celebrate the unique inner and outer features that make them who they are - regardless of skin tone, hair texture or culture, girls of colour now have characters that resemble them. Girls of colour now have Queens that look JUST LIKE THEM!
