NUBUKE FOUNDATION x KORLEKIE
In pioneering our heritage, KORLEKIE worked with the Nubuke Foundation, Ghana in cultivating the visual art and culture of Ghana through traditional heritage textile techniques such as kente weaving.
Kente is one of the traditional fabrics of Ghana, weaved by artisans who have specially schooled in the art of the heritage weave made on large manual looms.

Kente fabrics are created using cotton and satin rayon threads, which gives the Kente its beautiful lustre.
From the collaboration with Nubuke, we created two beautiful crop cocoon style jackets, products we hope to continue in the near future in support of the foundation. Stay tuned.
