Everyone one of our Tribal Wave medical accessories is handcrafted by skilled Nigerian artisans, using only African wax cotton (Ankara,) and sports of unique pattern. These colors and themes are designed to express the depth and beauty of your history, uplifting the spirits of not only yourself, but also your colleagues and patients.
The Tribal Wave Surgical Cap
Our satin lined scrub caps are more than just a hygienic way of protecting your patients. On the outside they explode with a richness of color and activity, and inside they enjoy a fine satin inlay. This added layer of protection prevents the heat and friction caused by cotton, so you won’t have to worry about breakage, split ends, or your hair drying out. Every satin lined surgical scrub cap is also crafted for one size fits all, using generous tie-strings to accommodate anyone’s needs. And two clear buttons, strategically placed beneath the ears allows for convenient fastening of medical masks for quick fastening.
The Tribal Wave Bouffant
Our surgical bouffant hats are much like our satin lined scrub hats in that they’re bright and lively and impossible to miss. Show off your storied heritage without a single word. We’re so confident in the style of our surgical bouffant hats that we suggest that you not think of them purely as medical accessory, but also a fashion accessory! Crafted with ample space for longer hair, a supportive elastic band, and tie strings, our bouffants are the perfect fit for anyone. And, of course, they’re lined with our signature satin, to prevent over-drying and other damage. Our satin lined surgical bouffant hats will keep your hair shining and prevent over-drying.
The Tribal Wave Medical Mask
Our medical masks, or Afrimasks, enjoy the same care and attention to fine craftsmanship and evocative patterns as all our products. Designed to work in place of or in tandem with the N95 medical mask, these are the perfect accessory to protect you, your patience and colleagues, and bring a little color to everyone’s day. Effective against 1-micron particles and re-usable, our medical masks aren’t only the bright choice, they’re the right choice.
While working in Ghana, we had the opportunity to observe local fisherman working on the beach. Though we already felt connected to Africa at the time, we could not ignore the colorful patterns of the clothing they wore seemed to make them more energetic. We would never claim that wardrobe grants the wearer energy, but that’s how it looked to us, and then an idea was born. If fisherman could seem so lively, could we bring the same verve to our own profession? And that was the beginning of Tribal Wave and our mission to provide medical providers across the diaspora with authentic, comfortable and effective accessories that represent the color, music, and passion of our heritage.
All Tribal Wave products are 100% wax cotton and hand-washable in cold water
