About Us

Nanela of London is a small business, that exuberates and loves patterns/prints and colour. 
Founder/Designer Leanna Bowen infuses her love for travel, natural hair and her background in Fashion & Textiles to create beautiful piece's using Ankara print and Kente cloth which originates from Ghana - Leanna 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, Leanna started making handmade headbands using Ankara print fabric, where the proceeds went 100% to Teens Unite Charity, thereafter expanded her products into making matching face masks, satin bonnets, accessories and custom orders; with the growth from customers around the world Nanela of London was born.
