Ghanaian furniture design company, Tekura has been featured in Marvel’s latest Black Panther movie – Wakanda Forever.

Tekura’s djembe tables were displayed with other made-in-Africa products on the set. The djembe table has inspiration from the djembe drum which is played with the bare hands and originates from West Africa.

The name djembe signifies a call for everyone to come together in peace.

It all began with a “mysterious order” at Tekura’s retail partner in the US 54kibo Home Decor. 54kibo recounted in an Instagram post congratulating all the curated designers whose products made it into the Black Panther movie.

54kibo, a luxury décor retailer and Tekura have been partners since 2018 and it has been retailing in US African design, luxury, and sustainable interior décor products.

Managing Director of Tekura, Audrey Forson says, “The Wakanda Forever movie feature is a major recognition and a huge opportunity for Tekura and African designers to show our excellence to the world. This reaffirms our vision to be the go-to décor and accessories brand. We at Tekura design create bits of our culture from sustainable wood, telling a unique and positive African story to the world.
