Maki & Mpho – Globally made, African-inspired prints and patterns for interior and fashion.
Design company Maki & Mpho. We hope to nurture empathy across cultures and celebrate individuality around the world. The company is co-founded by Japan-born global entrepreneur, Maki, and US-born hybrid African textile designer, Mpho (pronounced as “mmPOH”). We bring surprises, new perspectives, and joy to the global audience using distinctive prints and patterns that are originally hand-drawn by Mpho.
