Today we feature young Ghanaian entrepreneur Nana Osei

Nana Osei (@KingBohten) is the CEO & Founder of Bôhten Eyeglasses (@Bohten). It is on the mountainous region of Kwahu, highest habitable place in Ghana that Bôhten began its journey. Nana Boateng Osei, was inspired by his Ghanaian origin, his love of nature but mostly from his late grandfather Andrew Hanson Osei.


Nana built strong leadership and networking skills through the launching and organizing shows that exposed people to new innovative, sustainable and stylish brands. His growth and discovery taught him how to incorporate sustainability into every aspect of his business including the product development, high tech and fashion consumer merchandise.

Bohten eco-luxury eyewear tells a story which reflects, CEO & Founder, Nana Boateng Osei’s values and sense of style. Drawing influence from five different countries on three different continents, Bohten is reflective of both Nana’s skill for creativity and passion for cultural development, sustainability and fashion as a whole.

On the heels of receiving acclaimed feedback on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s “Dragon’s Den”, Nana’s new-found motivation to see the Bohten brand succeed has not gone undone. His newest collection has since been well received in Canada.

"Bôhten's manufacturing process starts with reclaimed wood & acetate harvested in the heart of West Africa. The lightweight eyeglasses are designed in Canada and handcrafted in a zero-waste facility. We’re not just a brand, we’re a revolution. We want to make more than just a statement, we want to make a difference." says Nana Osei.

Nana envisions an expansion of the brand around the world, from North America to Africa, onto the West Indies and Europe. Join them on their quest to seek to change the face of fashion with a vision that advocates both changes and awareness.
