Our Origin Story
The seed for Akatue was sown in 2018 after founder Liberty Clayton returned to her hometown of Bolga.
Inspired by the women in her family, liberty wanted to use her experience as a Savile row trained tailor to create tangible, progressive careers for artisans across Africa.
With our team lead by Sabastian in Ghana, we focus on quality, creativity, and growth. Our products are inspired by travels across the continent and learning from the craftspeople we meet.
We are inspired by the ethos of the Arts and craft movement and believe in making art accessible to all. Our products are carefully thought out and crafted to the highest standards- we believe everything in your home should either be useful or beautiful. Our focus is on juxtaposing traditional African with traditional British craftsmanship and techniques to create original perspectives on luxury.
