Our story

A welcome message from co-founder, Patric Okumi
“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together” - African Proverb

If you search for adinkra on the web, results will succinctly describe a set of Ghanaian symbols representing aphorisms. Tools used to express the connection between the verbal and visual. 

For Sean and I, we couldn’t have chosen a better brand name to tell our story. A tale beginning with two fiercely proud Ghanaian Brits, driven by a passion to unearth and celebrate the culture of Africa’s 54 countries. 

Our story is one for the modern age - an age championing inquisitiveness, diversity and inclusivity.

Through elegant and refined fashion, we're looking to showcase for all to wear some of the best of African culture - fusing our creations with cultures that have helped enrich our own lives.    

After all, as the infamous African saying goes - “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together”.

We invite you to join us on our journey to discover Africa’s stories.

Patric Okumi & Sean Ayeltigah
