The Re-Mixed African Heritage Track-Suit Top 

A special edition Adidas retro-styled unisex track suit top remixed by us.  This mid-weight tracksuit top features the most iconic Iyoba Idia pendent mask design in high quality gold embroidery -  one extra large one on the the back, and one small one on the chest.  The jacket is made from a high quality cotton polyester mix. A bold statement for those that want to get noticed.. 


The Image

The embroidered design on the jacket is the famous image of a 16th century ivory pendent mask of the likeness of Iyoba Idia (Queen Mother) from the ancient Kingdom of Benin in what is now modern day Nigeria.   The mask is one of the most recognisable African images.  Unfortunately, only one version of this mask remains at home in a Nigerian museum.  Similar and related original works were looted by the British during a brutal campaign into the Kingdom of Benin.  These looted items remain in the British Museum.  Nigeria maintains pressure for their return.


The Icon - Iyoba Idia

Iyoba Idia was of the Edo people. She was a warrior, protector, and a political & spiritual guide who fought for her son, Osegie, to claim the title of Oba of the Kingdom of Benin (c1504 to c1550). Her power and influence were such that she has been referred to as the ‘Hidden Oba’. She represents a timeless example of an African leader.
