About The Founder
Rufina Asaolu originally started patriciaqueritet in the humble abode of her bedroom! The idea was birthed from yearning for something meaningful and fulfilling. The quest for greater purpose, motivation and direction led to her creating simple craft items in her bedroom!
From DIY tutorials and blogs, Rufina learnt how to design and craft her own range of accessories. She then shared these with friends and families to wear at their leisure. The diverse array of accessories varied from African inspired earrings, necklaces to Ankara print shoes and Ankara bags.
One of the very first accessories Rufina made was a green and yellow rose flower headband! Astonished at her marvelous creativity and achievement, Rufina was overwhelmed with joy and satisfaction; something she was severely lacking. This feeling of accomplishment remained with her ever since she made her first craft item and led to her officially founding patriciaqueritet in 2018. The range then extended to African print clothing.
Rufina was born in Jirapa, Upper West, Ghana. Drawing on her heritage from her sister region Bolga, in the Upper East Region, patriciaqueritet offers a range of Bolga Baskets, Bolga Fans, Bolga Hats and many more. They are sustainable, eco-friendly and support the weavers from Bolga. We are passionate about investing back into the community.
