About Us


The Otiwaa Collection features a unique fusion between traditional African prints and modern aesthetics. The name Otiwaa (pronounced "Oh-Tee-Wah") originates from the ancient matrilineal Aykem Kingdom of the Akan people in Ghana. It translates to "Mother of Kings" or "King Mother."

Based in Washington, DC, our collection is inspired by our rich Ghanaian heritage and our love for African print fabric.  We aim to utilize African fashion as a cultural connection between the African diaspora, inspiring others to proudly embrace their African heritage and fearlessly express themselves while wearing our bold and vibrant prints.

All pieces are 100% handmade in Ghana. Our high quality and authentic African print fabrics are sourced from local vendors at Makola Market in Accra, Ghana.



 As part of our community service initiative, a portion of proceeds from each sale will be donated towards books, toys, and goods for orphans at Teshie Orphanage in Accra, Ghana.
