Jamhuri Wear by Jeffrey Kimathi

Jeffrey Kimathi’s company specialises in T-shirts emblazoned with images of Dedan Kimathi, Nelson Mandela and Barack Obama.The word “Jamhuri” translates from Swahili as “Republic” or “Free State.” It makes reference to the 53 vast nations of the company’s principal focus and invites the Jamhuri Wear-clad to play an ambassador-like role in the form of a fashionista state. Started as a graphic t-shirt line in 2003 in New York City, the brand has since grown to include custom outerwear pieces such as hooded sweatshirts and crewnecks. Pop stars such as Jay-Z, Akon and Damian Marley have all worn Kimathi’s shirts in concert performances.
