Kwame Baah is all set to improve lives by employing artisans in Ghana, West Africa to craft contemporary leather shoes with a traditional Ghanaian aesthetic. These are made of genuine leather and the colorful, handwoven fabric of Ghana called Kente. They have equipped each loafer with a soft and comfortable leather insole that molds to your feet over time. Each sole is handcrafted from recycled tire to support the environment. Kwame Baah Brand’s founder, George Kwame Baah, grew up in Ghana under impoverished conditions. 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. They blend contemporary design with traditional fabrics from Ghana producing quality handcrafted footwear and accessories that are comfortable, stylish, durable and affordable. They have been sourcing all their leather goods from US suppliers. The Onyansofoo, currently crowdfunding on Kickstarter, happens to be their 2017 leather and kente loafer collection.
