Designer 2 – Akosua Afriyie-Kumi

“I am a spontaneous and creative individual who has a positive outlook on life and work.”

 

Akosua’s experience in Accessories design:

“I thought I was a little mad to leave the comfort of a salaried job in London to start up a luxury brand in Ghana; yet upon reflection, I am thankful that I trusted my curiosity enough to forge a path for me.
I launched my brand A A K S in 2014, an accessories brand that creates hand crafted quality bags in modern styles through traditional methods of weaving with bright exuberant colours done by a weaving co-operative team in Ghana. Our design philosophy prioritises attention to detail, authenticity of technique to shape a truly unique product, using locally sourced materials such as raffia.
With our ethical ways of production we aim to impact our weavers greatly by providing employment for the local community, ensuring the continuity of weaving as a thriving art and also encourage it to be valued as a major income earner for many in the cooperative.
Currently, our impact has really been an inherent step for my brand as it has giving me the belief that we do have something unique and ‘Made in Africa’ can compete with the best in the world with a dedicated team of crafts people who share in my vision and passion.”
