Kona is an African fashion lifestyle brand based in Kampala, Uganda. The brand was founded by Bhavya Kalsi and Nimisha kalipurayath, two sisters from Indian heritage, who were born in West Africa. Inspired by their rich mix of culture and heritage, they came up with the concept for the brand.
The word ‘Kona’ means ‘Corner’ in Swahili, Luganda and Hindi. In this concept store is where you will find a fusion between Southeast Asian and African clothing, accessories, and jewellery. Patterns, varied styles, colours, and stitching techniques and unique materials all forms the signature style of Kona. The founders give back to the community by using locally sourced raw materials and local artisans, thus creating employment opportunities and empowerment.
