A A K S – Akosua Afriyie-Kumi
A A K S produces raffia bags handmade by a women’s cooperative in Bolgatanga, Northern Ghana. The brand produces luxurious handmade accessories using ethical processes and age-old craft traditions, which are not often seen beyond the borders of Ghana. After interning and working with fashion designers such as Peter Pilotto, Matthew Williamson and William Tempest in London, founder Akosua Afriyie-Kumi returned to Ghana to set up A A K S in 2014.
