It is hard to believe that there was ever a point in time when textile design seemed like a foreign concept to Chrissa Amuah. Though it wasn’t the initial career path for the Ghanaian-British founder and creative director of AMWA Designs, it is one that she possesses a seemingly natural talent for and that has kept her quite busy lately. Following her 2020 collaboration with Lexus for Design Miami, Amuah has recently launched a textile collection in partnership with furniture and design brand Bernhardt Design. Additionally, she is representing Ghana at the 2021 London Design Biennale– a global gathering of the world’s most ambitious and imaginative designers, curators and design institutions. Amuah’s desire to create designs that beautifully highlight her African culture has led to an organic growth for her brand in a relatively short space of time.
