Adinkra are the traditional Ghanian symbols from which Ebenezer Akakpo draws much of his inspiration for his jewelry and home goods collections.
The traditional symbology of Ghanaian heritage inspire unique designs that carry personal and cultural power.
As a child in Ghana, I could never have predicted the path of my future. Today, I know that the only way to understand who we are is to connect the dots backward to the events that made us. Every item I design carries pieces of my cultural history, skills and techniques of my education, and the passion I carry for promoting social justice. They are meant to remind us to remain open to every experience life brings us – they each have significance in who we become.
