About Us

Welcome to Kankou Elegance, a family-owned and operated African clothing company founded by Korka, a first-generation Senegalese immigrant. Our brand is inspired by Korka's passion for her cultural heritage, the vibrant spirit of dance, and the desire to celebrate and promote African culture through fashion.

Our clothes are hand-made by skilled Senegalese designers who infuse traditional African patterns, fabrics, and colors into each piece. Our collection includes both formal and streetwear clothing that is authentic and familiar to Africans in America.

We believe that fashion should be more than just about clothes, it should be about connection. As a black-owned business, we are proud to promote and support the work of African artisans and craftspeople in our production and supply chain. We take pride in the authenticity of our designs and the cultural significance behind them.

When you shop with us, you become a part of our story, our journey and our community. We invite you to join us in celebrating and promoting African culture through fashion. Experience the elegance of Africa with Kankou Elegance.
