akin: (adj.) the sentiment of connectivity, with your self and others.
akin was born on a sunny london afternoon when two sisters-in-law decided to create, grounded in their shared belief in empowerment, beauty and traditions. hailing from dominican republic and romania, they embody the endless inspiration of their travels and the artistic expressions of different cultures. the desire to bridge gaps between cultures and connect women through art and tradition flows through their veins.
the artisans we have partnered with hail from across romania, where they apply impeccable, time-tested craftsmanship. each artisan is able to express their skill and creativity so that cultural identities are preserved. our relationship with these skill masters is a cornerstone of akin.
