Pokuasi is looking to add to the team! We work between NYC and Ghana to create high quality, hand crafted jewelry and to document the process of growing a production team from the ground up. We are a part of the slow fashion movement, setting a model for how manufacturing runs can be produced responsibly in small batches. At our NYC studio, we experiment with emerging techNology and consider how it can be combined with hand crafted pieces.
