Hi! I’m Tahira, or Tee for short, the founder of Teecaake. Teecaake as it stands today first started in between pages and pages of writing on my journal just after I finished high school in 2013. But I properly began to think of it as a serious venture in the summer of 2015. Soon after, Teecaake was born.
Producing unique designs inspired by strong figures representing values of diversity, inclusivity, confidence and colour, Teecaake began as a passion project which slowly developed into an outlet for my mental health and struggles with cultural diaspora. 6 years later, the Teecaake brand spans multiple social media platforms, having amassed a following of over 60,000 people.
My art exemplifies many strong figures both in the media and in history that inspire me. As a female of South Asian origin, having grown up in a cities as vibrant as Manchester and Sheffield, now living in London, diversity and representation is extremely important to me. I aim for my art to convey my views and who I am, but above all inspire others.
