NASO was founded by Uyi Omorogbe, a first-generation Nigerian-American, former NCAA Division 1 men's soccer player, and Colgate University graduate.  He founded NASO to marry Western and African Cultures, through design and story, and simultaneously create tangible change in underserved communities. In 2019, NASO built its first school in Urhokuosa village, Nigeria, only months after   Uyi visited his father's birthplace for the first time.
When our customers wear our clothing, we want them to have a feeling of empowerment, a feeling that makes them think, "That's right, well done." Or as we say in Nigeria... NASO.
