Akwan2fo Fashion was founded in 2014 with the aim of creating more jobs for Ghanaian tailors in the place Assin-Foso.
What started with pillow cases and bags has quickly developed into an entire fashion line. With the help of Dutch design students the collections were designed and manufactured in Ghana. To introduce the designers and tailors, their names were stated on the labels enabling consumers to view movies and pictures on the website.
In 2016, Akwan2fo Fashion has started to change. Akwan2fo Fashion is split into two fashion labels: the by wubben line and the Sankofi line; the latter will be launched at the beginning of 2017. The fashion label by wubben is based on a minimalist design and a ‘clean African’ look in the use of the fabrics. This line is mainly focused on the European market.
Sankofi is mainly going to focus on the US market. The line is carried out in a chic Afro style which is combined with tribal prints. by wubben is designed by a Dutch design team, while the Sankofi line will as far as possible be designed by African designers.
