To Make and To Give

Handmade, Handpicked, Heartfelt

Akila partners with local artists and artisans in Cameroon to create a sense of community and offer an international platform for their artwork. One of a kind, hand made products are distributed at a Manhattan storefront and all proceeds go back to the artist and their country. 

Akila is a monochromatic brand to remind us that no matter where we are from, our creative purpose is the same — to make and to give.
