ABOUT US

The company was founded in 2014 by Simone Connell, with Simone having worked over 15years in the fashion and retail industry, and a passion for our African heritage, she wanted to bring a bit of rare culture to this already diverse city of London, then unto the rest of the world!
Our team in London works hard to bring you limited edition designs with a Ancient Egyptian twist.

Khepra - God of Transformation

In Ancient kemet it was believed that every night Khepera would push the sun (Ra) down into the underworld and every morning the sun(Ra) would again emerge and travel across the sky. His name comes from the Egyptian word Kheprer ‘To become’
Young dung beetles having been laid as eggs within the dung ball, emerge from it fully formed therefore Khepera also represents self-creation and rebirth, he was specifically connected with the mythical creation of the world.

The image of the scarab conveyed ideas of transformation, renewal and resurrection, the wings are a metaphysical form of the vortex which represents constant flow. Mummy cases of the dead were nearly always ornamented with scarabs, usually one of these beetles with spread wings was painted on the mummy cases directly over the breast of the dead as a form of protection in the underworld.
