The second time I was in Ghana I met Akosua Afriyie-Kumi, the lady behind the bags of AAKS, briefly at the airport. Her work is amazing and after hearing about it I got in touch with her shortly after that. And indeed, not only she’s doing a great job, it also suits perfectly with Celmatique. As a result, we came up with the idea: why not sell AAKS via Celmatique?
Get to know AAKS
Akosua wants – with AAKS – the world to get in touch with her favorite weaving technigues done by the women in Ghana. But that’s not all: with that she also creates and ignites sustainable jobs within Africa. Therefore all the bags are handcrafted in Ghana. The AAKS bags come in styles that maintain the spirit and durability of their ancestral counterparts characterised by bright exuberant colors.
While AAKS was launched in 2014, it is making its way up fast ever since. From features in Vogue Italia and Elle Decoration South Africa to stocking woven bag collections with Anthropologie and Urban Outfitters. And finally, Celmatique adds up to that list as well!
I’m very proud and honored to be working with such a rosaceous and soulful brand. Especially since Akosua is such an inspiring woman herself. Shop your AAKS bag now in the Celmatique Boutique!
