sustainability at heart
Akoma promotes sustainable development and helps preserve the ancestral art of weaving in artisan communities in West Africa through fair trade partnerships. Their mission is to empower and fashion is their medium.
Their commitment to work with new and evolving materials challenges the traditional ideas and processes without compromising quality. The origin of the Akoma products, as well as the stories behind them, remain front and center. It is key to reveal where things come from and how they were made; they believe this approach is beneficial to all.
TO BE WORLDWIDE Foundation
Akoma partnered with To Be Worldwide, a foundation that has built an Educational Center in Takoradi, Ghana that is transforming how children learn, think and feel about themselves and their community.
5% of their proceeds from all Kente sales are donated to the foundation.
