BEHIND THE BRAND
'extra fashizz mercantile´
An environmentally friendly,woman-powered natural lifestyle, online store that offers,handcrafted Afro-Bohemian jewelries , Toxin Free Vegan skincare , Afro-centric hair accessories and traditional Jamaican treats .Extra Fashizz Merc. brings a collection of products to those of my tribe who may not have the time to make an earring, a face soap , a headband or some delicious Jamaican Gizzadas themselves.
In a world were there isn´t enough room to be authentic, we have to create authenticity for ourselves.I do so by designing,creating ,wearing, and using products that are conversational pieces.We deserve to ¨ spoil ourselves... just a little bit...¨ After all, we only have one life to live.All Extra Fashizz Mercantile products are ethically made by hand at my home in Monroe, North Carolina.
Handcrafted Afro-Bohemian inspired jewelries that can be worn all seasons, while allowing you to be yourself on purpose.The best thing is that , I design and create styles , that I guarantee will be unique to you , but yet identifiable to others. I don´t care about the rules.If I like it and I think that you will like it, then I design and create it,with the use of vibrant colors , earth tone colors, authentic and ethically sourced materials that are sometimes upcycled. A few of the upcycled materials that I currently use are Ankara fabric, denim fabric ,coconut shells and wood.
I started using upcycled materials because, I always felt bad about tossing away a pair of jeans that my son outgrew with very few wears ,or tossing away the coconut shells after using the coconut for my cooking. I have always loved handcrafted Afro-bohemian jewelries.After , becoming unemployed in 2019, and could no longer afford to buy them, I decided to learn how to make my own, and the rest is history.
Now that you know what Extra Fashizz is about, let me help you to showcase your style, boost your confidence and allow you to feel good in what you wear for a great price.
What goes onto our skin or into our hair is just as important as what goes into our mouth.My frustration and my interest in finding skincare products that would not result in my daughter having an eczema flare up is what inspired me to create Strictly Rootzz . My family and customers have been using these products since 2020. I have done hours of research to learn about traditional ingredients and the natural ones that offers similar results. I am amazed about natural ingredients and how they can be healing.Like the name suggests, ¨Strictly Rootzz¨, is skincare that comes from the earth. I currently offer hair care, skincare and bath products that are made with pure, plant based and edible ingredients. All products are made in small batches to ensure freshness. They are packaged in zero-waste containers, which allows you to ditch the use of single used plastic.
I use simple hand written labels to add a personal touch to each item. All products are made with a goal to invoke the spirit of passion, luxury and wellness, while treating your skin to the best. Nature has provided me with amazing raw ingredients and my job is to show their natural benefits. These products have no synthetic chemicals,no toxins , no worries .They are just clean ,natural products that will allow your skin to breathe.
sHEKA rOOTZZ KITCHEN
Moving from Jamaica to Monroe, North Carolina, in 2014, sourcing Jamaican food was a struggle for me. My son and I were a bit home sick for quite some time.However, realized that making and eat traditional Jamaican foods and treats, would give us some amount of comfort and excitement. It was also amazing to share them with my new American friends.I create this brand to offer traditional Jamaican vegan treats to those in my tribe who are longing for or would like to try some Jamaican treats,but are unable to make them due to different reasons. This brand is to honor my great grand parents, my grandmothers and my mom . Most of the things I know about cooking and baking, I learned from being in the kitchen with them from the tender age of 7 years old. Here I offer mostly authentic old fashion Jamaican , tea leaves ,puddings, pastries ,cakes and juices that are made just the way I learned back home. I will sometimes add my little twist, based on my years of experience cooking and baking here in America as well.
Each item offered is carefully created and inspected before it is listed on this website. All orders will be fulfilled with great care and attention to detail. Most items will be made to order, but I promise to create and ship your product/s to you in 1-5 business days.
