Bantu Baddie Wax Bust

If you don't know, now you know!

These "future vintage" collectibles are absolutely stunning.  Designed by Sophia Mitchell, a Black female founder on a mission to diversify design. She notes that of the $727billion dollar home decor market, just 0.03% of furniture is designed by Black creators! 

The journey of creating these Bantu Baddies was, as you can imagine, not easy. To create a wax sculpture with a Bantu knot hairstyle is incredibly difficult. Creating a mould where the knots don't snap off when removing the wax takes a patience and commitment we truly admire. These bring new meaning to the phrase "work of art"

We have seen enough sculptures of people called David and Venus de Milo to know this representation is desperately needed. 

Each wax sculpture comes gorgeously wrapped with an information sheet.  You can burn these - they are a soy wax blend -  but you probably won't want to.

Why it's on The Cornrow

Sophia's mission is to support Black females, especially in their entrepreneurship endeavours - which is why she is happy to be featured on The Cornrow! We couldn't have more aligned visions. When The Cornrow co-founder Lara spoke to Sophia we talked about making beautiful Black art at a price point that means you can still send your kids to college. Afro-centric art for everyone to enjoy is what we are all about.
