Nanela of London is a small business that exuberates and loves patterns/prints and colour. Founder/Seamstress Lea.Bowen, born and raised in London; infuses her love for travel, natural hair and her background in Fashion & Textiles to create beautiful handmade piece's using Ankara print and Kente cloth which originates from Ghana - Lea felt inspired from her travels to Kumasi (Bonwire) where Kente cloth is hand woven, after having first hand experience weaving Kente cloth in Ghana. After returning back home to the UK, Lea started making headbands using Ankara print fabric, where the proceeds went 100% to Teens Unite Charity, a charity that supports 13-25 year old who have been affected by cancer; they have personally supported our founder Lea. www.teensunite.org thereafter expanded her products into making matching face masks, bonnets and custom orders; with the growth from customers around the world Nanela of London was born. Nanela of London is for the woman that loves to embrace, protect and style her crown and be crowned with culture.
