Our Story

AKWAMAN is a socially responsible streetwear label, ethically made by artisans in Accra, Ghana.

The story begins in West Africa, Ghana. A country with an inspiring soul, bright colours & beautiful fabrics. With the inspiration of the Ghanaian Culture, we combine the style of the streets of Ghana and the Western world.

AKWAMAN is founded in 2017 after Ekwele (Southern Cameroonian) and Jetske (Dutch) met in Accra and started a life together. With shared values and interests, they combined their experience and passion for fashion, ethical principles, sustainability and human rights and AKWAMAN was born. To meet the team click here!
