Our story

About the designer

Hafza Yusuf is a Somali-British textile designer, Art educator and founder of Hafza Studio. Hafza's love for art and her rich culture led her to pursue a career in textile design, which became a way for her to celebrate the beauty of the Somali culture and preserve Somali textiles and heritage.

'I want to bring a positive light to the beautiful rich culture we have through design. After the civil war in Somalia, the textile industry we had was greatly affected; some ultimately came to an end. Art is a massive part of our culture, and it needs to be protected' - Hafza Yusuf. 

Since the early stages of the studio, Hafza's vision was evident, she wanted to create a space to celebrate culture and community. Hafza is a passionate advocate for using art and creativity to bring communities together and make meaningful connections.
