Nkyimu, pronounced n-chi-moo, an Adinkra symbol representing skillfulness and precision, is a universally recognizable pattern created by the Akan people from Ghana and Ivory Coast.
This grid-like pattern is placed on fabrics before being stamped, ensuring precise placement of each Adinkra symbol.
Inspired by the precision of Nkyimu, Team 54kibo has thoughtfully and deliberately combed through countless products and designers to share the most beautifully curated selection of high quality contemporary design items from leading designers across the African diaspora.
