Our Story

African inspired fashion for women

Inspired by the pure joy of being able to create something meaningful and stunning out of nothing, our first accessory ever created was a minimalistic gold necklace with an intricate handcrafted leaf pendant. A classic piece to be worn by the cultured woman who knows exactly who she is and is proud of it.

Years later, we still make our coveted signature piece and have grown the Kua range into a lifestyle brand to include handbags, beaded jewelry, clothing for women and kids, soft toys, luxury scented candles, diffusers and other coveted products for women. Most popular among them are our unique clutch bags that were born out of the joy of being able to re-purpose and create something beautiful out of every day African print fabrics that, for years, were principally used to make traditional clothing worn by our Ghanaian mothers and grandmothers.

Kua was named after our founder’s mother and is an ode to the authentic woman who is clothed in style, confidence and pride in her culture.
From sourcing fabrics in local markets, to training workers with employable skills and passionately investing into the women on whose backs Ghanaian communities are built, we are spreading independence and sustainability. We are constantly “Keeping Us Authentic”.

From our unique stones sourced from around the world, to the real and diverse leaves we use in our jewelry, to our locally sourced fabric and leather which are mixed, matched and cut differently, our pieces leave you with the reminder of how truly special and unique you are.
