Aksel: More than Just Shirts

Several centuries ago, Aksel (pronounced äk-sel) was an esteemed Berber prince who dominated a war-torn North Africa, preserving the freedom of his people from invading nations. Of Berber origin himself, Yazid wanted to pay homage to his culture while defining a company that was created for the free men of today.

Our logo is comprised of an ancient Tifinagh character, pronounced yaz, which translates to free man. As an ambitious young entrepreneur, Yazid pursued Stanford’s MBA program to prepare himself for a life of unbridled and creative business pursuits. Traveling the world, sourcing fabrics, designing shirts and meeting with talented minds, he is a living example of the lifestyle he promotes. He hopes you too will enjoy the freedom of following your own dreams in the luxurious embrace of an Aksel.
