N K I L I meaning ‘Seeing Beautiful Things’ in Igbo; a Nigerian dialect, is a women’s luxury shirt-making brand focused on bringing light to the traditionally neglected yet single most important garment in a wardrobe, the shirt. By focusing on a single garment the designs can be seen in a pure form, without distraction, highlighting the progressive beauty and craft.
N K I L I designs beautiful prints aiming to make garments for people who value quality seasonless pieces and attention to detail. Each piece goes on a journey, from design and print to production, nurtured by the highly skilled production team in Scotland. The process of combining tonal hand drawings with traditional silk screen printing and hand painting techniques on pure silk makes each piece unique.
