An Idea Is Born

The Capher is a legal online business established in Maryland in 2014. Because Milcah Yahudah-Abdul Rauf was not successful in landing a job in the chosen field she majored in while attending college, she decided to start her own business. Her love for Africa, jewelry, authentic crafts and helping others prompted her to start the Capher. Because of shared values, goals and the belief that "everyone should be able to eat," in December 2017 The Capher Merged with the Mud Cloth Market and Shango's Gye Nyame Art Shop located in Ghana, West Africa to bring you all of these wonderful items found on this website. Many of the items on this website come from a variety of places in Africa but mostly from Ghana, West Africa! Some items are available in the United States as well but still come from Africa! 


Milcah Yahudah-Abdul Rauf is the Chief Executive Officer of The Capher, LLC and Shango's Gye Nyame Art Shop! She has a degree in Business Administration and is a consultant for the YAHU Garments based out of Ghana, West Africa! She has 8 years of experience in business! 


Abdul Rauf Ibrahim who is affectionately known as Shango is the Chief Operating Officer. He is responsible for the daily operation of the Capher. LLC when items are ordered directly from Ghana as well as the Mud Cloth Market and Shango's  Gye Nyame Art Shop based in Ghana West Africa. He has over 15 years of experience in business! 

As a home (Online) business located in the United States there are certain rules and regulations that apply such as no customer traffic can come in and out of the home. However, if you would like to purchase items in store that come from Africa, visit Sankofa African World & Bazaar at 2442 N. Charles Street, Baltimore, MD 21218!
