Kali Works (also: Kali. Works, Atelier Kali) is Canada’s premier pan-African boutique brand. Our two founders, Alex and Lindy, are immigrants of African origin who wanted to add a traditionally and modernly authentic sense of fashion that is unmistakably African-made or influenced. Started in Vancouver and now in Montreal, we create and fully embrace a distinct sense of pan-African pride.
Kali means spicy, hot, nice, dope, in Kiswahili—one of the world’s most widely spoken languages. Works (or Atelier) represents our method of working with artists and producers from all over Africa and the diaspora to bring you a culturally and artistically prideful product.
