Akola is a globally-inspired brand that embodies striking and luxurious designs that lift up, nourish, and champion women around the world.
Each piece is handcrafted by women in Uganda using local, high quality materials such as up cycled cow horn, hand-rolled beads, and natural raffia.
JOB CREATION FOR WOMEN IN POVERTY
Akola is providing life-changing job opportunities through vertically integrated manufacturing in Uganda, employing women in extreme poverty to make every piece of jewelry.
We believe in the tremendous power that a woman, specifically a mother, possesses and provides. Allow her to flourish and grow— and she’ll pass it on.
MADE FOR WOMEN BY WOMEN
Akola means “she works” in a local Ugandan dialect.
We have dedicated our journey to creating and providing jobs for
women who are caring for an average of 10 dependents.
