5 GHANAIAN BRANDS YOU SHOULD KNOW


I’m going to wrap up my Ghana travels with this post, sharing these cool brands I came across during the trip. Enjoy!


I first discovered the vibrant head bands by The African Accent at The Shop Accra. The beauty of this platform created by Michelle Konadu is that they offer culture and connection authentically through their variety of fashion and home decor items.





Hanahana beauty create handcrafted products of shea butter in different forms. What I like about them is the process and documentation of the source and production by the women of Tamale. Do not miss out on the giveaway which is a set of 3 Hannahana beauty products.




3. A.A.K.S

I absolutely adore these woven bags! I first saw them on Instagram (the place where I find most things for the first time). A.A.K.S founded by Akosua Afriyie-Kumi has successfully portrayed the brands identity and quality. I feel like I know the whole process of the bags just by the skilfull documentation on their Instagram account. 




4. Jewellery by Awuyé Eli

Awuyé Eli designs a range of jewellery infused with influences such as andinkra symbols and the diaspora, I love the rings in particular! Check out more of his work here.





I bought the Nokware black soap when I was in Ghana. Nokware means ‘truth’ in the Twi, the national language spoken in Ghana. This product contains solely organic ingredients and is handcrafted in Ghana. Not only do I love the soap but I love the calabash packaging! It’s the perfect gift for a friend.
