Hello my name is Pamela Obika and I’m a British designer and graduate of Architecture from The University of Manchester where I specialized in sustainable African design. My roots are imbedded in my country of origin, Nigeria. I am the third generation of skilled women, dressmakers, seamstresses and designers who have worked with Ankara fabrics. Following my grandmothers’ career path, I went on to teach Textiles which brought me back to my earliest love, working with fabrics.

OBIKA Textiles is the brainchild of my culture, history and experiences

The piece featured in the picture was one of my first products I produced. A depiction of the dilemma of ‘where is home?’ inspired by the work of the famous artist Yinka Shonibare. African fabric set within the boundaries of UK+Ireland map.
