Country of Origin - Benin

Olga’s grandmother, Louise Gbehanzin, taught her about the techniques of dyeing with natural colors, such as indigo. Her mother Marie Rose Lima, taught her how to awaken Benin’s nature colors using Indigo flower, kola nut, Baobab juice, Teck leaves, honey residue, Shea-tree butter, etc.

Her parents descended from the ancient royal lineage of the Dahomey Empire (modern-day Benin). Her grandmother created the king and queen’s fabrics, and the amazon warrior's clothes. The Dahomey royal families started using these unique fabrics during the Oro feast, an ancient Yoruba cult.

At 14 years old, Olga learned sewing. After her sewing training, Olga began to specialize mostly in the fabrication of batiks with a unique style. She dedicates her life to her works of art on royal fabrics called Aho.
