Ebedak Collections

Mrs Eunice Dake started her enterprise, Ebedak Collections in 1990. Her main focus at the time was tailoring, but after a few years in business she further went on to design for ladies, which is where most of her business today comes from.

In October 2012 Ebedak Collections had all together eight girls working alongside Eunice. Some of the girls still go to school across the road but do their job training with Eunice, time allowing of course. Eunice is not just a designer or a seamstress but a trainer and an educator teaching the girls Ghanaian traditions and manners. “It’s my mission to give the girls an opportunity”, she says.

Ebedak Collections design and make clothes from casual wear to evening dresses. There is also a unique collection of secondhand clothing with alterations made by using bright African fabrics. Some of the most recent products include accessories such as hats and handbags. In short Ebedak Collections has colorful personal designs combined with a modern touch. 

Like many successful entrepreneurs, Eunice has a dream: to open her own salon, a one-stop-shop for fashion, beauty and wellbeing. Individual and holistic services would be provided ranging from designing and sewing clothes and accessories to hairdressing and beauty treatments. Furthermore a restaurant would cater nourishments for the body while Ebedak Collections would work on personal wedding planning for the couples to be.

We will be following and supporting her so that her dream will come true one day.

 

FOFAorigin

The FOFAorigin team is committed to making the highest quality wooden bowls with eco-friendly thoughtfulness at the heart of their craft. The “fruit bowls” as we call them come in various natural shapes and color, each one finished with natural shea butter.

You can appreciate the team’s dedication to using local salvaged wood to make the bowls. Trees are also garnered from local farmers who are clearing them for pasture or from home owners concerned about the safety of their homes.

 

 

The FOFAorigin team of 5 has grown up to 11 in only a year. The shop including the workshop where all the bowls are made is located in Aburi, Ghana.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kinses

Kinses is a Belgo-Congolese Trademark registered in 2009 covering small leather goods, household linen as well as clothing accessories. Every Kinses product is characterized by the fact that it is a unique piece of craft. There lies real Luxury, doesn't it?

Kinses offers multicultural and timeless creations that suffer no geographical, temporal or ethnical splits. A Belgo-Congolese production legitimates the brand identity lauding fully handcraft work, a culture of the difference favoring personalization of the products and a high level of flexibility as well as a close collaboration with the craftsman.

Rosy Sambwa got her degree at Esmod Paris. She further educated herself to contemporary jewellery-making in Florence, Italy, before working for a well-known Belgian designer, based in Brussels. But Rosy’s Belgo-Congolese identity only became obvious during her frequent travels around the world. Far from forming some kind of duality, she rather considered her identity as a well-matched whole from within to extract and refine a personality, a touch, a style that would translate into various creations of excellent craftsmanship. This need for contact with the matter, this propensity for drawing, sculpture and writing are all but a return to her first love. Then, as a young girl in white and blue uniform, Rosy was sitting on the desk seats of the Art courses and pacing museums up and down.

Rosy’s drive to understand where she lies on the personal and professional development timeline and her need to be filled with what her guides accomplished before her are feeding her creative approach and working processes every day. (Rosy's picture by Didier Teurquetil)

mSimps

mSimps was established in August 2010 to promote African fabrics. What was really the kick start was the realization Mabel Simpson, the woman behind mSimps, had on how Ghanaians, especially those working in the corporate organisations, had to wait till Friday to wear something African, a tradition that still exists in the country. It should rather be an everyday affair to be able to go to work flaunting an African print bag or brooch. 

Mabel Simpson was born in 1984 in Accra, Ghana. Her grandparents have had a part to play in her design background as the maternal and paternal grandmothers were home scientists and the late grandfather a printer.  “They did pass the design genes to me because I remember watching and helping my grandmothers knit, sew and bake.  My grandfather also passed on his printing and design books on to me”, Mabel says.

Mabel studied visual arts at Wesley Girls’ High School, Cape Coast and majored in Graphic Design at Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology.  The courses have had a great influence on her design because it taught her creativity, innovativeness and how to be truly original.  While she does not follow a particular designer, she takes inspirations from designers who are original and innovative in their designs. “Before a product comes into being, one would first have to conceive an idea, make sketches on paper before going to the drawing or cutting table to see how you are going to cut and stitch the materials together”, Mabel reflects. Every mSimps product is made from scratch.

mSimps makes hand made accessories including handbags, laptop bags, iPad/tablet cases, slippers, cheque book covers, shoes, clutch purses etc. mSimps targets individuals and organisations who believe in the African dream, are fashion conscious, trendy and confident. mSimps collections are trendy, bold, original and represent Africa. They simply make you stand out. 

The ultimate goal of mSimps is to produce quality hand made, Made-In-Ghana products and be recognised in Africa and beyond in the next 10 years. mSimps also has hopes of establishing a training school for girls from under privileged communities.

mSimps was among of the 10 finalists of My Business 2011, a business mentorship competition organised by Jof fm in Ghana and the 2nd runner up in the UT Enablis Business LaunchPad competition in Ghana.

ZolitaBeads

ZolitaBeads, founded in 2006 by Anike Mantykoski, a London-based designer, proudly presents its exciting Shakara collection of African jewellery, made from semi-precious stones and natural materials. Anike has personally handcrafted her designs, never repeating nor reproducing them, so every piece in the range is absolutely unique.
