Black Manner is a fresh, young and dynamic textile brand, offering trendy afro-streetwear.
Black Manner wants to develop this concept of afro streetwear, focusing on the promotion of African youth and the diaspora. A generation endowed with talents whose only ambition is to change the world.
The story began in 2018. Founder Charles Meka, of Cameroonian origin, moved to Canada to Montreal, the location and birthplace of the brand, but also the main source of inspiration for Black Manner.
“I didn’t want to be like everyone else, and be out there just going to college to get an education, but I also wanted to share my vision to the world.”. – Charles Meka, CEO Black Manner.
Black Manner, in other words “The black way, the black way”. Being African or Afro-descendant represents a whole art, a whole culture, a tradition. Here, the brand wants to be talented, distinguished and especially aware of contemporary issues affecting the community. A way to promote “black excellence”.
With such a talented and diverse youth, the company makes its mark with eye-catching designs and catchy messages. Black Manner offers exclusive products: quality t-shirts, hoodies, shirts, joggers and accessories. Each garment is designed to convey a strong message for the Afro community to identify with. The velvet cap “Entreprenoir” is made to motivate the black community to undertake projects that are important to them. A similar inscription to the unisex sweet “Essential” with the slogan “Be Young, Be Awesome, Be Black”.
The brand also sells t-shirts, shirts, jogging suits and various accessories with rather affordable prices, ranging from $35 (15,000 FCFA) to $180 (80,000 FCFA).
“We want to inspire, motivate and support young people from the black community. Our vision is to continue our growth in the city of Montreal, then to conquer major international markets (Paris, New York, London …) but also Africa (Cameroon, Abidjan, Lagos …). We would like to be recognized among the most influential brands that represent Afro youth on a global scale.”
“Be Young, Be Awesome, Be Black.” — Black Manner
