Improving lives by employing artisans in Ghana, West Africa to craft contemporary footwear with a traditional Ghanaian aesthetic.
Kwame Baah Brand's founder, George Kwame Baah, grew up in Ghana under impoverished conditions. He was blessed to make it to the USA as an adult, where he attended university and got a job as an engineer. Whenever he visited his family in Ghana, his desire grew to find a sustainable avenue to help raise them out of poverty. Recollecting his childhood experience of making his own shoes from recycled tires, he was inspired to begin a shoe company. His vision was to design shoes and employ men and women in Ghana to handcraft them for the US market.Thus, in 2011, Kwame Baah Brand was founded with the mission to provide sustainable, economically just employment for skilled artisans in Ghana. We blend contemporary designs with traditional fabrics from Ghana, producing quality handcrafted footwear and accessories that are comfortable, stylish, durable, and affordable. We source all our leather from US suppliers and Italy.
