Akinko is an Accra based lifestyle brand that has gained momentum in Ghana with the creation of bags, accessories, shoes, and clothing with a transcontinental touch for men and women. The brand pride itself in working with local artisans across Africa.
The brand targets the high-end market with prices ranging from $200 to $1000. Given the heavy use of raw and precious materials such as gold, animal skins such as crocodile, springbok, etc. pure cotton, silk, copper, precious stones and more, this justifies the investment of their handmade one-of-a-kind products.
Celebrities in Ghana such as Okyeame Kwame (Singer) and Afua Rida (Blogger and Fashion Stylist) are regularly seen in the pieces of Akinko. The brand is looking to tap into growing demand from the global market for made in Africa products.
