Hello, Welcome to TabernPlace.
My name is Abi, and I am a consultant, a designer and an advocate for social justice.
Born and raised in the bustling city of Lagos, Nigeria, I grew up surrounded by bold colours, rich cultures, and unique patterns. The lifestyle in Lagos is all about sustainability, a holistic approach to wellbeing, and an emphasis on natural materials.
Now based in London, my mission is to re-create, rediscover and give new context to traditional Nigerian fabrics, techniques, and tropical colours. We work with small businesses, and craftsmen to source exceptional fabrics, designs as well as natural and sustainable products.
'The Tabern', blog page, presents the platform to have my say on issues that
I am passionate about. These include design, food, photography and social
justice - amongst other things. Includes contributions from guest bloggers.
My work as an advocate for social justice aims to challenge us all to
dive deeper and view our world through the eyes of the underserved
and the forgotten. I co-founded the Humanity Invest charity organisation
with like-minded people to explore innovative ways to support this cause.
