Siwa was founded in 2023 with the goal of showcasing the incredible versatility and beauty of Ghanaian textiles, creating heirloom products filled with meaning and heritage.
Our brand name comes from our founder’s middle name–Bentsiwa–a name she proudly shares with her late paternal grandmother.
As a Ghanaian and black woman-owned brand, we take care to respect and amplify cultural knowledge in each product through sustainable and ethical production processes. Each product is handmade in Ghana with love and care, and each print is carefully chosen for both meaning and aesthetics.
Community and creativity are at the heart of Ghanaian culture, and they are the driving force behind our brand as well. We merge thoughtful modern design with cultural touchpoints to create beautifully functional products that you and your family will love for years to come.
We blend the aesthetics of beautiful colors and textures to create unique heirloom products filled with meaning and heritage.
All our products are designed to be fully functional and versatile, so they can grow with your kids from nursery to playroom.
Each fabric and print is carefully chosen for both meaning and aesthetics, merging thoughtful design with African cultural touchpoints.
I’ve always loved sewing. My mum taught me to sew when I was very young, and by the time I was 8 I would make everything from clothes for my Barbie dolls to colorful pencil cases with scraps of fabric. I received my first sewing machine as a 10th birthday present, and the obsession only grew stronger from there.
Born after over 5 years of planning and prototyping, Siwa is a true labor of love. It brings together my love of creating beautiful things with my desire to embrace and share my Ghanaian culture and heritage, in beautiful and functional products.
I hope you find joy and meaning in these products, and they bring a little bit of the motherland’s warmth to your home, no matter where in the world you are.
