Sydney NwakanmaIn 2019 our Founder and Creative Director Sydney Nwakanma went to Nigeria to visit his family. He met up with his cousin who told him that he was struggling to find work, despite having a good education. A common problem in west African countries. Sydney and his cousin sat together and decided to create the lacking job opportunities themselves. They wanted to start a fashion brand that brought employment to the African people. This was the beginning of EMEKA.

But Emeka turned out to be more than that. It quickly became a bridge between Europe and Africa. A way to connect African craftsmanship to the European market. It became a new way of looking at equality and sustainability, through the lenses of creativity and fashion.
