About Sankofa

Sankofa Apparel

Sankofa Apparel made its public debut on October 16th, 1995 at the historic Million Man March in Washington D.C. The apparel company has always represented fashion to the socially conscious and has supplied vendors nationally for over 25 years in this regard. We pride ourselves in promoting unifying imagery to meet both fashion needs and to spread positive messages to the masses via our fashion artwork. Our philosophy is always, “less says more”. Our simplistic “art” speaks for itself.


Sankofa is an African word from the Akan tribe in Ghana.  The literal translation of the word and the symbol is it is not taboo to fetch what is at risk of being left behind.
