AAKS, a critically-acclaimed design brand founded by Ghanaian designer Akosua Afriyie-Kumi, exists to shine a light on Ghana’s skilled women weavers, bringing their talents to centerstage while creating a sustainable job market within their communities. ‘Weaving for Change’ is the brand’s home décor project which focuses on preserving the artisan trade of the Tuareg community—many whom are living as refugees in Burkina Faso. Each beautiful and handcrafted lamp generates awareness, income and job creation for these resilient and gifted women and their families.
