Quality Customer Service
Sankofa Athletics, LLC is a unity focused brand that was founded in 2019 in Los Angeles, CA by Khalia Ervin. The brand name Sankofa, is a word that originates from the Akan people of Ghana, and the logo is an interpretation of an Adinkra symbol known as Sankofa.
The symbol is designed with the bird's head facing backwards, signifying the importance of looking to the past. The egg represents useful knowledge. Therefore, the bird is looking to the past in order to retrieve useful knowledge to bring forth to the future.
My inspiration to create an athleisure apparel brand that is African inspired, consciously forward, and that promotes unity. Stems from my appreciation of fitness, the importance of living a health conscious lifestyle, and intertwining community activism within the brand. My inspiration is also rooted in my desire to bring an athleisure apparel line to athletes/non-athletes that is a reflection of US, that inspires US, and ultimately unites US.
Let’s Build! Let’s Inspire! Let’s Unite!
