Midzi comes from the Nyanja words 'mizu', which means 'roots', and 'umodzi', which means 'togetherness'.
We created Midzi to provide an avenue for the shared affirmation and consciousness of the value of black culture and identity among all people of African heritage. We are tied together by a very rich history and way of life; by common elements of music, dance and visual arts. We are tied together by Ubuntu - the idea of shared humanity.
Our mission is to create clothing that inspires a sense of togetherness, community and shared identity that illuminates our strong sense of pride in being of African descent.
