Belart started in a sort of manger (a room) in Mr and Mrs Osasona’s three bedroom apartment at 3, Tejumola Estate residence Abeokuta with a single blackhead mechanical machine. Our operations started with custom made garments for a range of Clientele for their special occasion. That kept growing in leaps as we kept expanding operations. With time, we added school uniforms, accessories and and souvenir designs. In the process, we picked up a skill in Adire (Tye and Dye making) to feed the ready to wear line. Our aim was to introduce bespoke tailoring and functionality to create contemporary afro-centric designs with Adire motif for both local and international markets. At the beginning, Mr and Mrs Osasona were the only employees, but overtime, the business has employed over ten workers and trained about 30 people. With the employments, we were faced with the challenge of low Human Capital because those we employed were either poorly trained or lack the required additional disposition for the job. Hence we started the in-house training Institute which has attracted students/trainees from Covenant University , Babcock University, Moshood Abiola Polythenic, Federal College of Education, Abeokuta Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta, Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, Bowen University. Yaba College of Technology, Corps Members and Ex Corp members as well as Civil Servants who have sought to add values to themselves.
