Tobias Drummonds is one of the many fashion designers now working in Hackney. He loved African textiles but felt too distant to African culture to be able to wear the traditional vibrant patterns and colours. These hats are from his online boutique Africa inspired selling luxury fashion accessories. They use symbols from West African clothing as a subtle way to celebrate culture as part of modern British style.
