Summer where you at?
It's freezing here in the UK but that doesn't mean we can't plan our summer now.
Ashanti Swimwear designed for Queens - Akwaaba Ohemaa
Ashanti Swimwear is a Ghanaian family owned business. Founded by 23 year old Yasmeen (the youngest member of the family) and her 27 Year old brother Dexter. Yasmeen saw African print swimsuits on runway shows, catwalks and magazines. Unfortunately, they were never accessible or ready to purchase immediately. This inspired her to create her own collection of Kente and African print Swimsuits for other women like herself.
27 year old Dexter encouraged his sister Yasmeen to pursue 'Ashanti Swimwear'. The two siblings born and raised in both London and Accra, Ghana went into business together to create something unique and excellent by bringing the true, authentic meaning of traditional African culture to the luxury swimwear industry.
The name ‘Ashanti Swimwear’ originates from the Ashanti region of Ghana formerly known as The Gold Coast due to the land being rich in gold and resources. Within Ghanaian culture kente was usually kept aside for very special occasions such as weddings, funerals and celebrations.
‘Ashanti Swimwear’ was created to share the royal Ghanaian culture with men & women from around the world. All designs are limited edition.
Ashanti Swimwear promise: To execute absolute Excellence!
