The purpose of this tour is to build brand awareness by show casing our unique designs domestically and internationally.


My name is Khalia Ervin and I am the CEO & Founder of Sankofa Athletics - an African inspired athleisure brand dedicated to providing quality apparel, footwear, and accessories backed with purpose.

As the founder, I have worn many hats when it comes to building this brand. However, I am now happy to say that just a short two years later, I have the privilege to delegate tasks to well qualified Sankofa team members. We are growing as a team, and I am really excited about the future of Sankofa Athletics!


Sankofa Athletics is excited to announce our partnership with Bovtiqve Fashion Week,  and with your supportive contribution, our avantgarde patterns will be available for both viewing and purchase. 

Our partnership with BVFW is an unparalleled and invaluable experience which means for Sankofa Athletics: increasing representation, advancing in modern fashion, and improving athletic wear. Our experience in Atlanta and Houston has been phenomenal as you can see in our recap videos. We are now gearing up for Las Vegas, Nevada.

BVFW is held twice a year during the months of February and September and rotates cities for every edition, providing the selected cities the platform to make a significant impression on a critical sector of the fashion industry - while highlighting the cities’ capacity to thrive within the growth of one of the most profitable industries in the world. 


This is an amazing opportunity for Sankofa Athletics to showcase our unique designs domestically and internationally, and being a part of The Believe Tour with Bovtiqve Fashion Week is just the start of that. We are asking you to help us and join us on our mission as we bring our cut and sewn African-inspired athleisure wear to new markets by becoming a Sankofa Athletics sponsor.

Atlanta, GA - February 2021

Sankofa Athletics, established in 2019, is an African-inspired athleisure brand dedicated to providing quality apparel, footwear, and accessories backed with purpose. Our mission is to evoke Authenticity, Strength, Innovation, Elevation, and Unity amongst athletes and non-athletes alike. For us, community means everything. This is why when we first launched, we decided to partner with the Maasai Water Project, a non-profit organization that provides clean drinking water to the Maasai people in Tanzania, and donate 10% of our profit from our hat collection to their cause. It is also with our community that we were able to continue to grow and accomplished so much within the past year, such as:

In 2020 – 2021 we have accomplished so much:
   • Sold out for the 1st time!
   • Multiple Features
         o NBC NEWS
         o Translash Zine
         o Back and Forth TV
         o GAYE Magazine
         o The Fox Magazine
         o Shoppe Black Feature
         o Voyage LA
         o Voyage ATL
         o Jaiko Magazine 
   • Two brick and mortar retail stores
         o Indie Fashion Retail Store (Michigan, Springfield)
         o The Pink Zebra Boutique (Atlanta, GA)
   • Our 1st Fashion Week (Bovtiqve Fashion Week) 
         o Recap video above!
   • Launching our first billboard in Conyers, GA

This does not encompass all that we have done, but this provides some substance.
