Welcome to the world of Nyemay Collectables, my friend Nyemay’s home accessories and ethnic designer gifts company. Nyemay’s Collectables creates exquisite embellished bath towels, baby gift sets,embroidered clothing and so much more for your home decor dreams. I have been a fan of her towels for years and they have decorated my home and dazzled my guests everytime.
In most traditional cultures, the value of ‘art’ lies in its use. So in many ways, Nyemay is a traditionalist. As founder and head designer for Nyemay’s Collectables, she creates functional fine art. Pushing the bounds of creativity and education, the collection is distinctive because of its symbolism. Spoken like a true old soul, Nyemay hopes to ‘reconnect Africans throughout the diaspora with their collective culture’. Nyemay uses both Adinkra ,Khemetic symbols and other universal symbols as well to inform her clients, while beautifying their environments. Embroidery is the paintbrush. Bath towels, baby bibs, and hooded sweatshirts work as canvas. Nyemay’s Collectables make the mundane meaningful, the everyday — extraordinary.
Though the business began as a staple on the Brooklyn Street festival scene, it promptly grew into a custom order enterprise with products placed in New York’s most eclectic boutiques. And while widely regarded as the world’s fashion capital, the gritty grind of the big apple can wear on one’s spirit . With that said, Nyemay took a leap into the unknown — she relocated to Atlanta, GA. Reenergized by the warm weather, southern hospitality, natural beauty, Nyemay’s Collectables is bringing cultured couture and home decor to a fresh market. With the addition of aprons, pillow cases, place mats and other items, this spirited collection is poised for prominence.
