Johari SadiqCEO & Founder
Johary Sadiq is an entrepreneur, fashion designer and CEO / Founder of Binti Africa Co LTD a fashion power house in Tanzania. As the last born of her six siblings, Mrs. Sadiq was born, raised and educated in Africa, Tanzania. She was not bought up surrounded by fashion but as a child, the prolific Tanzania designer watched her mother stitch clothes as a seamstress which inspired her, creating a strong passion towards fashion and design. Growing up, she always knew deep inside that she would be a fashion designer but she didn’t know how and when, and most of the time it seemed like a pipe dream.
After studying Information Communication Technology (ICT), she worked with local telecommunication companies for a couple of years. Inspired by her love of sewing, fabrics, and color, Johari recognized that working with clothes was her calling, and therefore resigned in 2011 to realize her dream.
“I knew I wanted to go out on my own, pull together all my passion and talent to create something unique that would be fulfilling both personally and professionally. That is how I established BintiAfrica after seeing a gap in the market for African textiles”
