Our Story

Welcome to Ayebea's Sankofa Marketplace – a vibrant hub of culture, craftsmanship, and consciousness!

Welcome to Ayebea's Sankofa Marketplace – a vibrant hub of culture, craftsmanship, and consciousness! Born from the humble beginnings of Ayebea's Charming Beads with a mission to educate women about the cultural significance of waist beads. Now we’ve grown into a marketplace that offers a wide selection of artisan products that are socially aware and steeped in Ghanaian culture.

Our Mission

Our mission is to serve as a bridge between worlds, transporting you to the heart of Ghanaian culture through our curated collection of chic, handcrafted, and socially conscious artisan products. At Ayebea's Sankofa Marketplace, we are more than just a marketplace; we are storytellers, educators, and advocates for preserving and sharing the rich heritage of Ghana.


"Sankofa," a word deeply rooted in the Akan culture of Ghana, embodies our ethos. It symbolizes the act of reaching back to the past while moving forward, a reminder that understanding our history and traditions is essential for shaping a meaningful future. With this philosophy as our guiding light, we have embarked on a journey to curate an exquisite assortment of products that seamlessly weave together the threads of tradition, craftsmanship, and sustainability.

Central to our mission is our collaboration with talented artisans based in Ghana. We have sought out individuals who possess a deep connection to their heritage and unparalleled skill in creating masterful pieces that reflect the essence of Ghanaian culture. Each product tells a unique story – a narrative of age-old techniques passed down through generations, infused with a contemporary touch that resonates with modern sensibilities.

Our Marketplace

Our marketplace proudly offers a diverse range of high quality products such as intricately created bracelets and necklaces, vibrant Ankara and Fugu-inspired apparel, beautifully made fans, and captivating beadwork. These treasures, born from the hands of skilled artisans, are infused with the spirit of Ghana's traditions and rituals, capturing the essence of a vibrant and timeless culture.

Yet, our commitment extends beyond the aesthetic allure of these creations. We are dedicated to the principles of social consciousness, ensuring that our products are ethically sourced, environmentally friendly, and contribute positively to the communities from which they originate. With each purchase, you are not just acquiring a beautiful piece of art; you are making a meaningful investment in the lives of artisans and their families, supporting sustainable practices and empowering local communities.
