Afia is inspired by the layers of the world around us. Our fabric is sourced in Ghana and our garments are sewn in Downtown Los Angeles.
Afia (pronounced uh-fee-uh)
means born on Friday in the Twi language of the Ashanti.
In aesthetic, Afia is a fusion of worlds that embodies a universal and multicultural identity. In process, Afia moves between time, space, and culture with consistency and integrity.
The collections are made with cotton-wax prints from Ghana with a very short lifespan in the marketplace, resulting in forever limited-edition pieces of unique fabric. The color, patterns, and motifs used in West African textiles are often visual representations of history, proverbs, moral values, and social codes.

A red-eye flight at 4 days old began a life of perpetual motion for Meghan Sebold; a practice of moving between worlds fluidly and presently. Born in Oakland, raised in Minnesota, educated in San Francisco, primed by New York City, and now at home in Los Angeles, Meghan seeks to create beauty and to challenge cultural projections and social norms in an effort to propel evolution and enhance this life. While studying in Ghana, Meghan saw how she could bridge cultures and fuse worlds with a fashion product as the physical manifestation.
