Yodit Eklund is the founder of Bantu, an African beach and surf lifestyle brand. She grew up in Ghana, Sudan, Kenya, Ivory Coast, and Egypt before attending the University of California, Berkeley, where she studied environmental science and economics. Eklund returned to Africa after graduation. Inspired by Africa's transition from the dark continent to a bearer of light, tales of Mami Wata (the mermaid goddess of the oceans), and a passion for surfing, Bantu merges the rich history of Africa's art and textiles with its deeply rooted surf culture. The label uses traditional processes and works exclusively with local vendors and artisans to make quality products that are stylish, functional, and authentic. Photo: Courtesy of Mode PR
