ADE crown - Croun of Oduduwa, the founder of the first Yoruba kingdom in Ilé-Ifè
Ilé-ifè means the house of love in Yorùbá, the mother tongue of the designer.
The Yorùbás are a large ethnic group from West Africa, mainly present in Nigeria and Benin, but also in Latin America.
The names of cities, towns, and villages Yorùbá often include the prefix ilé, which means house, or ilẹ̀, which means land, country, or land.
Like Jerusalem, Mecca and Rome, Ilé-ifè, located in southwestern Nigeria, is one of the main sacred cities in the world. For the Yorùbás, the city is at the epicenter not only of Yorùbás lands but of the whole world; not only of all that has existed and all that exists, but also all that will exist.
It’s the heart of the Yoruba identity.
