Fiona Mpungu

Despite academic roots, Fiona Mpungu is a fabric and textile enthusiast who specialises in creating interior decoration products.

Sankofa Creations is Fiona Mpungu's labour of love that grew from a fascination of textiles to the flourishing small business it is today. The products are mainly interior design and fashion items created from carefully sourced African fabrics. The line includes cushions, kaftans, kimono-styled bathrobes and shawls, and more. Each product is designed by Mpungu and then outsourced to local tailors for production.

Mpungu comes from a background of African History and Public Health and is currently enrolled in the Awethu Project, a small-business incubation hub.
