Our company was founded in January 2015. At the time, it was "Shop Sarauniya," an online platform where we retailed ready-to-wear clothing produced in Ghana. We operated as such until October 2016 when we landed the opportunity to participate in Accra Fashion Week. The traction we gained from that experience motivated us to develop our enterprise.
Rather than being an online shop and selling to the masses, we transitioned into a brand and committed to a smaller clientele for whom we created custom garments. Shortly after, we dropped the 'shop' and became "Sarauniya."
Producing in Ghana has always been a key part of Sarauniya. In November 2018, we made a major change to our company to demonstrate our interests in African development over mainstream fashion: we transitioned into 100% manufacturing for other brands. The transition has allowed us to create more job opportunities. We believe deeply in the future of Africa and understand the role manufacturing will play in creating that future.
