Jarga Design was founded by sisters Jankeh and Saffie Njie who are heavily inspired by their Gambian heritage, upbringing in Norway and their large family. 

“ We were born surrounded by more sisters than brothers, more aunts than uncles, and more nieces than nephews. The strength of women has been around us for as long as we can remember and is a huge creating inspiration for us”.
