AAKS Handcrafted bags

AAKS is a luxury accessories brand started by Akosua Afriyie-Kumi, based in Kumasi, Ghana. Her aesthetic is a fusion of her heritage and exacting sustainable craftsmanship. Her passion creates handcrafted quality bags in modern styles whilst maintaining the spirit of Africa through traditional, intricate methods of weaving with bright exuberant colours. Each collection silhouette tells a different story through detail, colour and shape. 
Already singled out by Vogue Italia as an extraordinary emerging brand from Africa, AAKS represents a stunning tradition—levelled up.
Weavers at the AAKS workshop in Bolgataga Village twist and dye raffia in AAKS’s signature vibrant colours by hand, then use a hybrid of traditional techniques and modern construction elements to construct each collection.
