I started marketing and promoting the artwork of Yeb about five years ago on my website Inside African Art – it was a hit! After sending nearly 200 silk thread artworks all across the country, I decided to devote a website specifically to the marketing and promotion of Yeb’s incredible silk thread artwork.
I have done the research; there are few websites that sell silk thread art from Ghana. Some of them are pretty nice, nearly all of them are much more expensive, and none of them offer the selection and ‘direct-connection’ with the artists providing you with the opportunity to have an original silk thread artwork made just for you!
From Emmanuel and Gloria Yeboah:
I am Yeb. Thank you for visiting this webpage, dedicated to our craft. It takes anywhere from 2 to 5 days to complete a single piece of silk thread artwork – no two are the same! I would be happy to make one for you! Please see the artworks below to choose the art you would like for me to make you!
My wife, Gloria Yeboah, is also very involved with the making of our silk thread artworks. Her fingers are smaller so she does much of the detailed work. I also rely on her for new ideas and even the use of new textiles.
The original silk thread artwork that we make is unique – but it is also customizable! If you like a certain artwork but you rather it have a yellow background instead of a white one, let me know. If you prefer the woman to be wearing a red dress or the man to have a purple hat – anything you want, we can do!

Before and After
How to Purchase Original Yeb Silk Thread Artwork:
I have tried to make the process as easy as possible by allowing you to choose the artwork that is perfect for you – and having this artwork made specifically for you! Your customized artwork will be made by Yeb and his family in Ghana and shipped to me here in Florida – and then forwarded to you. The whole process take 3-6 weeks, depending on where we are on the orders made by others.
Size of Silk Thread Artwork are ‘poster size’:
Horizontal pieces are 3′ wide x 2′ tall – Vertical pieces are 2′ wide x 3′ tall
$500 for one – I will ask for an initial deposit of $250 to begin your project
$475 each for two – I will ask for an initial deposit of $225 per artwork to begin your project
$450 each for three or more – I will ask for an initial deposit of $200 per artwork to begin your project
Prices above include the cost of shipping from Ghana to me in Florida, and from me to you – domestic USA only! These prices are not for an custom artwork. Custom artwork can be discussed by email or phone only as each size and content is unique so prices will vary.
Outside of USA: Because of the size of the silk thread artwork, I cannot ship internationally for the prices quoted above. I’ll be glad to ship anywhere in the world, but will have to ask you for international shipping costs in advance. I can provide these prices as needed.

Let me know what you have chosen. I will ask you for a $200 deposit per Yeb chosen and send you a PayPal invoice for this amount.
On confirmation of deposit, Yeb will begin working on your custom silk thread artwork. It will take from 3-6 weeks. Once completed he will send your artwork to me in Florida. Once I receive your artwork I will ask you for the balance we have agreed on. On confirmation of payment, I will ship to you your beautiful artwork! Simple!
It’s a process, I know. However, Yeb and I do this a lot – I will keep you posted every step of the way. To date 282 pieces shipped – Sept 2016. Update: 515 pieces have shipped – July 2018.
