Japsule - Made in Japan

Earlier this year in April, we were supposed to go to Tokyo to launch our Japsule collection in partnership with Awa'Tori. 
 
This was not possible due to the covid 19 pandemic. On the 17th October we had a product launch in Tokyo in collaboration with Pizza Slice and the Oasics Skateboarding team.  
 
The Japsule includes: a raincoat, reversible bucket hat, waterproof shorts, socks, and the buddha peace, love and unity tee, all made from recycled material. They are now available on our international store(www.wafflesncream.co.uk). We have an ITA tee exclusively  only in Nigeria(www.wafflesncream.com)

DEFEND YOUTH TEE

It has now been over a week since the youth first took to the streets in protest against the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS). SARS was founded in 1992 to combat a crime epidemic and, initially, the unit seemed determined to reduce crime significantly. However, in recent years, they have been a menace to our society, targeting young people and using the tech boom as an excuse to unjustly brand young people as fraudsters and brutalize them in the process.

SARS has become responsible for a lot of unrecorded death, unwarranted detention, and extortion. But the youth have had enough. We have decided to protest, and to bring an end to this monstrous unit that is killing us every day.

Ten members of our creative community have joined forces to raise funds to #SustainTheProtest. They include: NM Bello Studio, Alara, Homecoming, The Lost Okoroshi, Seun Kuti, The Republic, Deborah Segun, Native, Dennis Osadebe, WAFFLESNCREAM.

To support the fight against police brutality, we have designed The DEFEND YOUTH TEE, featuring an illustration by Deborah Segun, and sold exclusively on www.wafflesncream.com & www.wafflesncream.co.uk 100% of the proceeds from sales of the Tee will be donated to The Feminist Coalition, an organization fighting against injustice through peaceful protests, fundraising, and social media organization.

The youth have spoken up and our voices will be heard.

Sweet Mother

By the 17th century, female slaves were made to take the place of “low -class” women paid to breastfeed white babies, a practice known as wet nursing. Enslaved nurses whose infants died soon after childbirth were extremely valuable. Becoming a wet nurse had detrimental emotional effects on black women, beyond those created by more traditional forms of slave labour. Such as the prolonged separation from their babies so they could focus on servicing white children.


This month of march has been dedicated to women all over the world as well as mothers. WAFFLESNCREAM has produced a tee shirt to celebrate the strength and bravery of these black women who were forced to participate in this selfish and inhumane act.

Lagos Skatepark - Go Fund Me

We are looking to get a park built this year in Lagos. It will be the first in west Africa.

As the first and only skate shop in the region, we have been promoting and spreading skateboarding for the last 4 years.

We have been skating at the few available spots Lagos currently has to offer. The quarter pipe we built has been broken down and thrown away as part of the renovation of the basketball court we currently skate at.

We would like to raise £35,000 to build a concrete park with expert skate builders. Once we raise the funds we can put pressure on Lagos state to release the land for the build. This would be a huge achievement and would change the skate scene in Lagos permanently.

If we beat our target, we will use the funds to maintain the park and we would also love to buy decks and set ups to distribute to the local community and spread the love of skateboarding.
