Our Story

While Edmonton and Calgary, Canada is where you can trace our beginnings, the love of Africa, it's diaspora and our global community is where you’ll find our soul.

Founded by Franck Hounsokou in Edmonton, Canada in 2016, Boutique Africaine® is an online marketplace for African inspired items that came about when the founder was looking for a blazer with African prints for an event and couldn’t find one readily available.
