AKILA is a premium Ghanaian brand that specializes in hand-crafted beaded accessories. We work with locally and internationally sourced beads and materials to create various accessories ranging from bags, hats, jewelry slippers as well as phone and computer cases.
All our accessories are created at our workshop in Accra, Ghana, by a team of talented artisans made up of deprived women, youth and the unemployed in the Ghanaian society, who have a desire to acquire skills with which they can begin a career in accessory making themselves. By providing free monthly training, the aim of targeting this group is to provide them with sustainable income to enable them become contributors to society, as we play our part in eradicating poverty.


“Every AKILA piece is created to bridge the gap between African indigeneity and modern finesse. Although operating from Accra, Ghana, AKILA pieces can be accessed world-wide via our website”
