Ọkpara House

Ọkpara House is a producer of Igbo content. Through art and design objects, prints, and various media, our mission is to harness the power of good design, dialogue, and academic research as powerful agents to stimulate, reactivate, elevate, and reimagine Igbo culture. Ọkpara House Publishing creates beautiful books that reimagine the rich and vibrant Igbo folktales. Spurred by a lack of representation, we create new narratives and assert control over our image and knowledge assets. We want to stimulate and normalize our story by connecting our present to our past. We are setting standards for African- inspired storybooks while making relevant our cultural assets on contemporary lifestyles.
