YOUR LIFE IN ART
Here at SANKOFA ARTS, we encourage you to journey back to the land from which we came through a variety of visually stunning and purposefully designed adornments. Each piece is carefully crafted to be a “reminder” of royalty from our past as well as the royalty of our future.
SANKOFA ARTS bridges the gap between ancestral excellence and present day ART. Let our adornments be the first to welcome you BACK HOME.
“go back and fetch it”; we must look back to the past so that we may understand how we became what we are, and move forward to a better future.
