KumaVida is an eclectic women's wear brand inspired by a cosmopolitan lifestyle. Its style aesthetic is described as a perfect combination of simplicity and extravagance. Our pieces are handmade by talented artisans and produced in smaller quantities to add to the exclusivity of each garment.
We enjoy putting our own personal touch to fabric using but not limited to beading, and embroidery. By hand-making each piece with love, you can expect your purchase to be truly one of a kind.
Hello, I’m Sheila! In the 4th grade, I was given a sewing kit and some fabric for a handkerchief creating project. I finished the project then created a dress, I’ve been in love with designing ever since.
Having had the privilege of seeing the world at a young age I quickly adopted the sentiment and idea that I am a world citizen. As a result I have been influenced greatly by not just my culture but those of the people and artisans I’ve met.
KumaVida is a collection of designs made by some of the most talented artisans in the world. Our designs so far have hailed from India, Kenya, Morocco, and my home country of Ghana. Our designs fall in all or one of the following categories:
- Made using sustainable products
- Made using traditional artisanal methods
- Empowering women through trade
- Made using recycled materials
- Made in small batches
