Education is our passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to the people who prepare for it today.

Black Excellence Grads was founded in the UK. We wanted to create a unique product that black graduates could wear with pride when they graduated. Our kente print stoles are made from 100% cotton.   Our main ethos is to celebrate black excellence, encourage unity and recognise academic success in style. Our products are not only for graduates but we have a range of high quality products for professionals and special occasions.

We also have a Royalty range where you can add the flag of your choice.
