Our story

AfroRicky Organique

Starting in Inhambane, known as the “land of good people” in Mozambique, Ricancia Agira envisioned a new narrative for fashion. In 2008, her passion for preserving her homeland’s heritage and driving sustainable change led her to sow the seeds of AfroRicky.

Officially launched in 2013, AfroRicky blossomed into a dynamic fusion of tradition and innovation, breaking free from its cocoon to unveil a stunning tapestry of style. With one foot in the past and the other stepping boldly into the future, AfroRicky embarked on an unprecedented journey, intertwining African heritage with sustainability.

Transforming into AfroRicky Organique after a decade of evolution, the brand’s commitment to environmental harmony became woven into every fabric and stitch. More than a fashion label, AfroRicky Organique became a storyteller, spinning tales of Africa’s rich history into contemporary designs that resonate with global audiences.

From the vibrant streets of Maputo to the far reaches of the world, AfroRicky Organique’s collections have captured the hearts of fashion enthusiasts everywhere. Crafted exclusively from natural materials and dyes, each piece transcends borders and cultures, appealing to those who seek beauty with a conscience.


In 2024, AfroRicky Organique embarked on its boldest venture yet, recognizing that true sustainability goes beyond the finished product. With an unwavering commitment to sustainability practices, AfroRicky Organique launched an innovative agriculture project, cultivating fields of regenerative cotton in its land of origins, Inhambane.


This groundbreaking initiative not only secures a sustainable supply chain but also propels AfroRicky Organique into a new era of self-sufficiency and ecological stewardship. With roots firmly planted in Mozambique and branches stretching to Europe, AfroRicky Organique is poised to redefine the African fashion industry, for us and the future generations.

Ricância Agira (founder of AfroRicky Organique)

In Inhambane, Mozambique, Ricância Agira, affectionately known as Ricky, harbored a unique dream from her teenage years: to channel her boundless creativity into the art of fashion design. Amidst the backdrop of pervasive poverty and gender discrimination, Ricky resolved to seize control of her destiny, forging her path towards empowerment through the transformative medium of entrepreneurship.

Fuelled by an insatiable hunger for change and armed with little more than determination, Ricky embarked on a remarkable journey of self-discovery. With each stitch, each creation, she delved deeper into the art of fashion production, learning the intricacies of everything from cultivating cotton to the alchemy of natural fabric dyes.

In 2010, Ricky achieved a remarkable milestone by clinching the title of the best designer in the nation at the prestigious National Festival of Culture, triumphing over 40 talented fashion designers.

By 2013, at the youthful age of 22, Ricky’s exceptional talent and dedication had caught the attention of the Ministry of Culture of Mozambique. She received a prestigious invitation to join the fashion council of the National Festival of Culture, with esteemed guests from Swaziland, Morocco, and France.

As she traversed the length and breadth of Mozambique, Ricky’s senses were awakened to the significance of the Capulanas – the iconic garments worn by African women and men alike. These encounters infused her designs with a profound cultural resonance, laying the foundation for her distinctive style.

Undeterred by the challenges that lay ahead, Ricky blazed a trail of innovation, pioneering the use of locally produced natural dyes in her 2020 collection – a first in Mozambique’s fashion landscape. Her relentless pursuit of sustainable fashion led her on a quest across the globe, seeking out new techniques that would minimize her ecological footprint.


Today, Ricky stands as a beacon of inspiration, her journey a testament to the transformative power of passion and perseverance. From humble beginnings to international acclaim, her story is a testament to the boundless potential of those who dare to dream.
