KHALIA ERVIN

Founder / CEO

My inspiration to create an athletic apparel brand that is African inspired, consciously forward, and that promotes unity, stems from the appreciation of fitness, and the importance of living a health conscious lifestyle. My inspiration is also rooted in  my desire to bring an athletic apparel line to athletes that is a reflection of US, that inspires US, and ultimately unites US. 

 
Let’s Build! Let’s Inspire! Let’s Unite! 

ABOUT SANKOFA

Sankofa Athletic Apparel, LP is a unity focused brand founded in 2019 in Los Angeles, CA by Khalia Ervin and Brianna Releford. The brand’s name Sankofa, is a word that originates from the Akan people of Ghana. The logo is an interpretation of an Adinkra symbol known as Sankofa. The symbol is designed with the birds head facing backwards – signifying the importance of looking to the past. The egg represents useful knowledge. Therefore, the bird is looking to the past in order to retrieve useful knowledge to bring it forth to the future. This signifies the brand’s motto “Future Movement.”
