Onoffice Magazine - Ones to Watch: Paboy Bojang
Words by Roddy Clarke
In a new bi-weekly column with Roddy Clarke, we shine the light on the emerging talents, designers and makers to watch from around the world
“Don’t be shy to think of your biggest dreams and try to make them happen,” says Paboy Bojang, an inspiring entrepreneur and founder of In Casa by Paboy, a creative social enterprise selling a range of bold and playful cushion covers. While many entrepreneurs share a similar mindset, Bojang’s story is a true example of determination and resilience.
Born in Gambia and living under a brutal dictatorship, Bojang felt pressure to leave his country nearly a decade ago. After undergoing an excruciating two-year journey across the desert and Mediterranean Sea, he arrived in Italy in 2015 to begin the next chapter of his life. Residing in Naples, Bojang eventually found employment with Antica Manifattura di Stingo, the renowned majolica workshop.
