MY STORY
The vision of an Africa bag did not come to me as a mere idea, but in a dream I had of a woman wearing Africa on her back while walking down an isle. A dream that took me on a 4year journey designing  a ‘had never been done before’ concept of an Africa map bag --to now worldwide known as our classic signature bag.

‘The Black-owned Label reshaping the luxury bag’ --as ESSENCE MAGAZINE brands us to be — has personally humbled me with life lessons of following a dream. This journey has come with a lot of sacrifice and learnings; impossibles made possibles; seeing the perfections in imperfections; an intriguing tale spun by the finest of weavers, it seems.—Weaving through even my personal life to seek purpose in my pain and to find purpose in a narrow tunnel of fashion with a lantern of light, exhibiting not only our African inspired fashion but reshaping the minds and narratives around Africa.

A MESSAGE TO YOU

Dearest,
I am not the storyteller, YOU ARE! You wearing your Africa bags and Africa purses with pride, telling your story to the world. That is where I find my joy. I hope these Motherland bags bring about an intimate connection with Africa —being inspired by her love to the world to be proud to carry her— illuminating love, unity regardless of your race, color and background; seeing us all as one human beings.

But personally and more importantly for me, reconnecting all African descendants together--celebrating our home, our love for each other, our heritage, our diverse beauty in identity, our art, our culture and many more by telling our everyday stories with pride and in style.

I want to leave you with this message to inspire your journey too, no matter what it is; Remember, I was just a dreamer, who just made a dream a reality and today a black-owned luxury bag brand rewriting history and carrying the culture with pride in style. This is only to say possibilities begin when you start to believe.
