The palace was borne out of the deep thought of the two sisters to make shopping accessible to the people even in the midst of the pandemic. Aafin Ewa deals with retail and wholesale ranges of skincare and haircare products, high quality clothing for men and women, gift packages, and a great selections of essential ready-to-wear items.
One of the unique products is the Mother-Drum Shape-Me Waist Trainers. These waist trainer designs were actually inspired by the inner wooden part of the talking drum. The talking drum is an hourglass-shaped drum from West Africa, whose pitch can be regulated to mimic the tone and prosody of the human speech.
It has two drumheads connected by leather tension cords, which allow the player to change the pitch of the drum by squeezing the cords between their arm and body. Talking drums are carved out of tree trunks and made having an hourglass shape with long leather tension cords attached from the drum head to the base of the drum.
And guess what? The hourglass carved out wooden part of the drum is actually an important feature that gives the talking drum its rhythm and unique sound, just like the way a woman’s waist accentuates her beautiful look.
Mother-Drum-Shape-Me Waist Trainers are uniquely designed with comfortable materials to give that desired hourglass shape like the wooden carved part of the talking drum. The latex version of the Mother-Drum-Shape-Me waist trainers are designed with 96% cotton, 4% spandex, while the Neoprene types are designed with 80% Neoprene, 20% Nylon.
The inner parts of all the waist trainers are soft and comfortable on the skin and the outer parts are designed in colorful Ankara and Adire prints. We have five beautiful designs in various colorful Ankara and Adire patterns. Three designs are unisex and two are undergarments for women.
All the waist trainers have no side effects. Instead, they give support to the back and can be worn during workout sessions, at work, and for everyday use. The attached straps can be adjusted to give desired comfortable compression on the tummy area, just like the compression on the strings (Osan) of the talking drum gives the rhythmic and danceable sound.
