Learn about who we are, our ethical values and the charities we support.
WHO WE ARE
We are the Okoye brothers (George & Ross) from Bournemouth, England.
We have a combination of British, Irish & West African origins. Ages Apparel started in 2015 as part of an exploratory journey into those African roots.
We began selling just one African inspired rhino t-shirt design, from there we have expanded our range to include many t-shirt designs, hats, jumpers, artwork, accessories and authentic African goods direct from Ghana!
We now also attend festivals & events, sell online, are stocked in shops and support a number of good causes with every sale!
With Ages Apparel you will always get high quality, ethical products with original design & top customer service direct from us!

African Wildlife Conservation
We are committed to protecting the animals and cultures that much of our inspiration is taken from so:
We donate to the African Wildlife Foundation for every item of street wear you buy!
'The African Wildlife Foundation, together with the people of Africa, works to ensure the wildlife and wild lands of Africa will endure forever.'
SUPPORTING THE AFRICAN PEOPLE
Our Made In Ghana range is from street sellers and Aboom Special Needs School on the Cape Coast.
We trade directly with street sellers which helps them get the best deal and live a good life whilst supporting their families. Purchasing products from Aboom Special Needs School helps fund the education of their students and goes towards paying for the upkeep of the school!
Caring For The Environment
We are always looking for ways to minimise our carbon footprint and be environmentally friendly where possible.
Our Earth Positive range is 100% organic, Fair Wear Foundation approved, manufactured using renewable energy and growing all the time! Our aim is for all new products to be as ethical as possible so you know you're getting the best ethical standards when shopping with us.
We recycle where possible and use packaging you can re-use in future such as resealable bags and recycled paper carriers for events.
We are always looking to find ways of reducing our carbon footprint, so if you have any concerns or have any solutions on how we can do this better please get in touch.
Fair Working Conditions For All
We believe everyone has a right to safe, fair working conditions. That's why we are proud to support the Fair Wear Foundation & WRAP.
All Fair Wear Foundation & WRAP items are made in safe working conditions where employment is freely chosen, people are paid a living wage and work reasonable hours in a safe working environment.
