Crafting Dreams into Reality
Armed with an undergraduate degree in History and Diplomatic Studies from Babcock University, Nigeria, Folayemi embarked on a path of exploration during her National Youth Service program. There, she discovered her love for bead making and African print crafts, setting the stage for a remarkable journey.
As her skills blossomed, she found herself drawn to the vibrant community at the National Art's Theatre in Iganmu, Lagos, where she became a resident artist, setting her sights on even greater horizons.
Today, her artistry continues to captivate hearts and minds. In her words:
"My learnings in discovering my skills as an artist inspired me to teach others and ultimately start my own business".
Folly's Arts and Crafts offers a unique reseller program, providing wholesale opportunities to customers both within and beyond Nigeria.
