My Creole Culture
International Creole Day takes place next week on 28th October, with celebrations all around the world. In Saint Lucia and Dominica Jounen Kweyol is a week-long celebration of cultural events and festivals, although Covid may change things again this year. We love everything about creole culture so to mark this important celebration of our culture, the Culture Club Shop will launch the ‘My Creole Culture’ campaign, in conjunction with Saint Lucia Tourism Authority. Our week-long campaign from Monday 25 October will include daily giveaway prizes, live interviews on Instagram and content that highlights all the unique and special features of Creole culture. Visit the website and follow us on our Facebook and Instagram to join the celebrations.

Dealing with Arthritis
Arthritis is a common condition that causes pain and inflammation in a joint. In the UK, more than 10 million people have arthritis, which affects people of all ages, but it is very prevalent in the UK African and Caribbean communities. Osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis are the 2 most common types of arthritis. There's no cure for arthritis, but there are many treatments that can help slow it down. Culture Club Shop customers have experienced some relief from symptoms using the Saint Lucian Nat-Med Releaf spray, the pain relief product is all-natural and uses herbal extracts to help sufferers.

Protect Your Hair
Some people love them, some hate them, and Kaz from Love Island brought worldwide attention to the essential hair care item. The benefits of wearing a Silk Bonnet are clear; they protect your hair from dryness. Your hair will no longer have friction from moisture-absorbing cotton pillowcase, and with more moisture in your hair, you'll be able to reduce breakage, tangles, and hair loss. We are really pleased to introduce Flag Bonnet to the Culture Club Shop collection, so you can care for your hair, whilst still representing your country. Watch out for our Silk Cushion covers coming soon.
