Casa di Culture, a brand for the modern nomad, was started in 2007 by three African-American sisters. Their product line consists of culturally inspired designs and travel friendly apparel such as organic cotton t-shirts silk-screened with PVC-free inks, reversible scarves using fabrics from various countries, and batik button earrings.

Raised in the cosmopolitan city of Washington, D.C., the sisters were exposed to a diversity of art, music, cultures and customs from an early age. This exposure created a strong interest in international travel, which led to expat lifestyles, learning new languages and extensive expeditions throughout the world. Subsequently, Casa di Culture was born in order to create items for citizens of the world that reflected their new nomadic identity and lifestyle.
