As young girls, Nana and Afua were completely enamoured with their father’s handmade leather Ohenema slippers as well as their mother’s intricately woven Kente silk ensembles. While maintaining strong family ties in and regular travel to Ghana, their childhood in the small German town of Wetter and respective moves to New York and London made Nana and Afua adept at authentically fusing multiple cultures fashionably. The name MONAA combines Afua’s nickname, “Mo” with “Naa”, the affectionate abbreviation of Nana. Likewise, the brand combines craftsmanship steeped in tradition but designed with a global perspective. Hence, the sisters present a luxurious new footwear option and a personal labor of love: Made in Ghana, for the customer who makes herself at home anywhere in the world she may be.
