  • Olympic Bee Bag

    I am quite excited about the start of the Olympics. I have to admit I am completely enthralled by everything from opening ceremonies to the athletics to the basketball games. At Urbanknit HQ we thought we’d do a little something to show our support and love of the games, especially as it holding in our beloved London this time around.

    The most prominent symbol of the games are the 5 interlocking rings in blue, yellow, black, green, and red and usually against a white background. It was designed in 1912 by Baron Pierre de Coubertin, the founder of the modern Olympic Games.  The rings represent the five continents of the world and it is suggested that at least one of the colours appears on all the national flags of the world. Let us know if you have spotted an exception!

    We have a made a special Olympic Bee Bag (our bestselling pleated tote bag) which incorporates each of these colours in strips of Aso-Òkè. The Olympic colours with an African twist!

    Check out the full schedule of the games to make sure you don’t miss something exciting. So what particular event are you looking forward to seeing? Please leave a comment and let us know!
