Koko Krafts was formed by myself and my cousin Nana, our parents are originally from Ghana and so we have the pleasure of being able to go back home frequently. One of the things that struck us is creativity and the ingenuity of our people in Ghana. The phrase the hustle is real encapsulates the work ethic of the nation. Without the safety net of the benefit system that we recognise in this country, people have to work to be able to provide for their families.
After a trip to the Art Centre in Ghana in 2016, our eyes were opened to the vast talent and creativity that exists in Ghana and in fact that exists in Africa as a whole. Don’t get me wrong, this was not our first trip to the art centre, however on this occasion it’s as if the scales fell from our eyes and we saw the potential to bring the artistic and creative essence of Ghana to a wider community. That moment was the birth of Koko Krafts.
We started with the African print fans; these fans are stunning and functional at the same time. They are made using Ankara and sometimes kente to really draw on the vibrancy of Ghana. Our fans are hand made with attention to detail. Our fans have been a great hit with people from diverse back grounds. You don’t have to be African to appreciate, our fans are for ALL. We grew our business to include other arts and crafts such as carvings, paintings and jewellery.
We retail our products via social media @kokokrafts and various pop up events. We love engaging with our customers and recreating the Accra Art Centre shopping experience. Were all about creating an experience for our customers, that means we don’t mind a bit of banter and haggling. Even if you don’t buy from us you’ll leave smiling.
