IT HAS TO START SOMEWHERE...
Jelani means “Great, Powerful”, the name is of Arabic origin. Jelani was created to empower Kings & Queens of African descent. We are all of African descent. Jelani is a special brand because of the unique features of the brand, including hand painted garments, special design textures, & custom garments.
Jelani was created by Khairi Jelani at 19 years old. Jelani’s hometown is Chicago, IL. Jelani has always been a creative minded person, always finding ways to express himself & stay true to his beliefs. Jelani’s father also specializes in graphic design & made custom tees as a consistent hobby. So, like father like son, Jelani decided to create a special brand that represents & expresses what we stand for.
