Yem & Franka

We’ve been friends since 1984 when we met at a boarding school in Accra, Ghana. We both left for the United Kingdom at some point after school and hooked up again many years later in Ghana.

We wanted to do something meaningful together not just as friends but as business partners and our passion for fashion, art, music and beautiful things birthed the idea of Indigene Africa.

We want to support up and coming African designers and young creatives. It is important for us to share the beauty and character of our Africa with the world.

Our products are hand-crafted and lovingly made around Africa, including Ghana where the business is registered.
