What Is The Inspiration behind EVA SONAIKE ?
Eva Sonaike is a London-based interiors and lifestyle brand creating luxurious textiles, home-décor and accessories with a distinctive and vibrant West-African aesthetic. Inspired by the cultural mélange of West-African textile tradition and European craftsmanship. Expertly printed in Germany and manufactured in the UK, the luxury range (of textiles and products) boasts a breadth of exclusive designs that bring a touch of African luxury to any setting.
hat Is Unique To Your Brand?
It is a combination of traditional ‘African’ aesthetic with a contemporary, luxury style, which many of our professional clients describe as ‘new’. Every Eva Sonaike product is handmade to the highest specification and quality. All of our products are made in the UK, some in Sweden and we make the rugs in Nepal, where we can guarantee ethical production standards.
What Inspired You To Start?
I have a passion for interior design and an exuberant love of color, as the company’s Creative Director, my aim is to add a new and distinctive aesthetic to the luxury interiors market.
At the moment all my team members are African women. One from Sudan and another one is a fellow Nigerian.
It is great working with women who understand and support my mission of bringing African design to the premium and luxury market.”
“OUR PRODUCT IS HANDMADE TO THE HIGHEST SPECIFICATION AND QUALITY ”
What Are Your Aspirations?
We are stocked all over the world and are continuing our mission to bring African design to the forefront of the luxury interiors market. My future plans are to continue to grow the business, be stocked by more retailers worldwide, grow my direct client base and work with an interior designer on commercial and residential projects.
