Our name, Emowa (pronounced "Ee-Moe-Wa") is derived from the Nigerian Yoruba phrase, "Eh ma moh wa," which means "You Will Know Us."
Here at Emowa, we embrace differences and encourage everyone to live bold and be known for not just what they do, but for who they truly are. We believe you should not have to leave your true identity at home and be like everyone else around your day to day atmosphere. Designing socks inspired by symbolic cultural textiles and art, Emowa socks represent a statement of self-expression, individuality, and cultural appreciation.
Our message is to inspire others to hold on to what makes them unique. We do not believe you should ever compromise your values and individuality to fit in. We celebrate the bold ones, the brave ones, the cultured ones.
With all of our designs, we’ve made sure to infuse a little boldness for everyone. Whether you’re a minimalist or a super expressionist, no matter your category, you’ll be sure to look…different. Step into Emowa socks and step boldly into the world.
