FULANI was founded in 1991, and has been providing custom made clothing and professional tailoring services to its discerning clientele for almost 27 years. From one man’s dream and desire to democratize impeccable tailoring and cosmopolitan style, FULANI Boutique has become a mainstay in tailoring circles, especially in Brooklyn, New York, it’s proud home.
Bringing to bear tailoring and life experiences from backgrounds as varied as West Africa, Paris, California and New York, A.B. Bah (affectionately called AB by customers and family alike) began to piece together a legacy of masterful craftsmanship, cosmopolitan style and renown customer service in a casual, easy-going atmosphere. It became a family business very early on, with his wife, sons and daughter pitching in to build up FULANI.
A speaker of four languages, AB and the FULANI tailors could find a way to identify with each customer, pinpoint their sartorial needs and wants, and offer satisfaction in a final product made just for them. Whether it was a simple repair or alterations to a wedding gown or an off-the-rack suit, or FULANI’s specialty of fully custom-made suits, the attention to detail remained the same, and the customer’s needs and personal style always came first. The FULANI philosophy quickly earned the boutique and AB rave reviews and accolades such as “the best tailor in Brooklyn”.
Sadly, AB is no longer with us. His spirit and legacy lives on, and the family business is proceeding to new heights. FULANI is expanding to a wider audience outside Brooklyn, offering more options and services, and by popular request, will be building up our fledgling womenswear business.
