Tekura Satellite Production site :
This new site is a 1 acre plot at Amantia which is to be the basic production unit to supply Tekura with partially processed work for finishing in Accra. It is the 1st among 3 to be constructed by the end of this year.
This shed was connected to the national grid for electricity on 14/3/11 at 3:30pm but work had already begun on the 4/3/11 with a stand by generator. With 7 carvers, 2 machine operators and 4 technical staff under the supervision of the General Manager, this new and efficient mode of production took off.

The process of getting a complete Tekura product starts from here. we start sourcing of wood in the wood catchment area of the Forest Institute of Ghana close to this facility, then the wood goes on to be carved into the desired shapes and sizes which go through initial drying and then these carved pieces are conveyed.
This has become possible with the collaboration of FORIG to make us of off-cuts and dead wood from its areas of operations.

These off-cuts and dead wood which are forest waste products but are raw materials to us and thus a very important part of the production. This site also aims at training unemployed and unskilled people in handicraft in the surrounding communities as well providing interested farmers with an alternative source of income during the off-farming seasons.This raining will start on the next quarter of this year.

Tekura: Ghana’s number one go-to furniture maker and store…

I have very simple tastes, when it comes to Ghanaian/African furniture; -I like genuine antiques or modern repros with a stylish, functional, contemporary slant.. So.. imagine my delight upon stumbling across the above photographs taken by team Tekura at the Ambiente 2012 show!!

First and foremost I’m crazy about the furniture, the colours, the meticulous way the furniture has been edited down to the very 'best' of Tekura.. Secondly, the effortless, simple backdrop of the Ambiente 2012 show makes Tekura’s uber modern, stylish and functional pieces -pop and finally; the whole entire Tekura collection above -speaks luxe, something that’s rarely associated with African furniture..

I’ve loved the ‘Ghana Made’ Tekura brand ever since I discovered it about three years ago, but when I was about to feature it on La blog early last year -their website looked like there was very little activity -so I left it… But I’m uber pleased to see Tekura’s website popping again..

Ghana’s number one go-to furniture maker and store, Tekura’s exquisite “stylish yet functional collections that include stools, tables, benches and storage containers; in addition to complementary home décor items like bowls, vases and mirrors” inspired by “ancient cultures such as the legendary Ashanti and Fanti.” -are de rigueur.
I truly feel, Tekura founded in 2000 by Josephine and Kweku Forson -should be shouted from the rooftops, -how many quality, stylish, contemporary furniture makers can you think of in Ghana -doing it big?
Ghana Rising thanks Josephine and Kweku Forson for having the foresight to create this project in Ghana; for using the talents of local Ghanaian artisans/carpenters and for upholding the tradition of stool making -something Ghana was once famous for… Note, Tekura does cater to all tastes -be it: sleek, elegant and high-end, contemporary or rustic and much more…
