Murahaba Means Royalty In Swahili

A Symbol of Self Awareness, Modesty, Respect of Tradition, Culture and Royalty. There’s no Crown of gold, diamonds or otherwise of greater value than a Woman coming into the realisation of her Royalty. As African Women we have been raised in a Culture where our grandmothers encouraged us to crown ourselves. Our headwraps honour our ancestral lineage and adorn us with our roots.

I started covering my crown mid 2013. By crowning myself I felt and gained a deeper understanding of my womanhood, modesty, virtue and royalty. Growing up with Sickle Cell, I had low self confidence & esteem; Having Sickle Cell did not make me feel in any way beautiful. It wasn’t until I started wearing my wrap that I felt closer, more loving and appreciative of the woman I am, the culture I represented and the wholeness of my being, even with Sickle Cell.
