Though My Rare View was started as a way to combine my passion for traveling and deep love for Ghana. As I navigated travel accessories in stock, I didn't find accessories that presented what I stood for. After pondering deeply, I realized I can create passport covers using prints that represent me and share parts of my background with fellow explorers. In the midst of this realization, the pandemic hit and I had to pivot to expand my travel accessories to include backpacks, duffel bags, tote bags, neck pillows, and facemasks. The pivot wasn’t easy, but essential.
This dream allows me to give back to natives of my homeland Accra, Ghana. Seeing my craft come to life brings me great joy, especially as someone who grew up ashamed of wearing prints from Ghana due to being bullied for being African. I can humbly say, I reclaim that power now and PROUDLY represent my rich background and history through all the vibrant prints used
To create a legacy through a global African print travel brand by incorporating unique experiences, prints, and patterns that evoke emotion and allow fellow wanderers to connect with what grounds them and brings them joy.
What makes the Through my Rare view product unique?
Products are unique because I am involved in the end: end process of it all. I design the products myself based on market surveys or simple nuances I have encountered while traveling. I outsource fabric that is limited in production to ensure exclusivity and then I have them made by local artisans - many of whom are fellow woman-owned businesses as well. All of my items are unique in design, are made with vibrant prints, and most tote bags can be washed with similar colors
Multi functional and Asthetic
All accessories are multi-functional and extremely durable. Each item can be used for day-to-day activities to vacations. Tote bags can be used for school, cafe runs, beach, gym, etc. while duffel bags and backpacks can be used for airports, road trips, etc.
