A A K S
Handcrafted in Ghana, A A K S creates handbags in styles that seek to conserve the provenance of weaving as an art form, accentuated with the bright exuberant colours of Africa.
Founded with the goal of introducing the world to her favourite weaving techniques by the women of Ghana, Akosua Afriyie-Kumi is increasing awareness around ethical production processes and encouraging sustainable consumption in the fashion world.
The essence of A A K S design philosophy is enshrined in these three main pillars: designs that embodies a critical attention to craftsmanship, ethical and sustainable values in the production cycle, and a high-quality finished product which will never be mass produced.
