Please welcome AAKS brand that produces luxurious handmade raffia bags and accessories using ethical processes and age-old craft traditions. Every piece is made by a women’s cooperative in Bolgatanga, Northern Ghana. The brand offers amazing designs colored in bright hues. Ghanaian fashion designer Akosua Afriyie-Kumi wants the world to see how luxury and quality can grow from traditional designs.
The visual inspiration behind every design is reflected through the images of Ghana. I must admit, every single creation from her collection is a piece of art. Craftsmanship is the foundation of this luxury brand. It takes approximately one week to complete a handbag. The result is a modern style achieved by traditional handmade skills and techniques.
