Frequently Asked Questions:

Who are the Yeboah's?  The Yeboah's are a Family in Ghana that create the Silk Thread art you see here on our site. We are your connection between your order through us and the Yeboah Family in Ghana, who create and ship your art.

How much is my custom artwork?  It depends on the size, amount of subjects, what You want to pay, what the Yeboah's want to be paid, and what True African Art wants to be paid.  Prices will vary based on the project skill involved and its content.  Either way, we will accept any reasonable offer and will work on your behalf in mind for what you want to pay for your custom artwork.  We can negotiate by phone at +1.914.602.8037 or by e-mail at: Info@TrueAfricanArt.com

Who ships my artwork? 
To minimize costs, the Yeboah's will mail the art directly to you from Ghana, rather than to us and then from us to you.  That plan is just too unsafe, complicated. and expensive....we'd rather have the Yeboah's do one direct mailing.  Shipping is included worldwide in the price of your Silk Thread. 

I don't know the Yeboah's.  How do I know they will deliver the art?  We hold your payment for the Silk Thread Art with us in New York until you receive the artwork from the Yeboah Family in Ghana and confirm your satisfaction.  Only then do we forward any funds to the Yeboah's.  This process is meant to protect all parties.

The Silk Thread Art is expensive.  How can I afford it?  With True African Art, you can elect to make payments on the artwork at 0% interest and you’ll receive the art once it is paid for in full.  Art by nature is expensive no matter what genre as it employs a person's innate skill and time.


How will the Silk Thread get to me and how much does it cost to deliver?  Regular shipping is included in the price.   Delivery takes about 1-2 weeks to reach you. The Yeboah's give us the tracking number and we e-mail it to you.  The Yeboah’s will send it out to your address via Fed Ex, DHL, UPS, or EMS. 

How long will it take from when I place my order to when I receive the art?
We have an expedited process with the Yeboah Family.  Since they deliver directly to your address from Ghana, you can expect to receive your artwork in about 2-3 weeks from when you first place your order, more or less, depending on the scale of your portrait.  We can let you know more specifically the delivery date once your order is processed.
