We are now more than 3 seasons into the basket bag trend and it’s seemingly going nowhere. As new brands keep putting out new collections, without fail, we immediately add them to our wish lists! The good news now is, we may have reached our final shopping destination with ethical fashion brand ÉKÉTÉ.
The brand which uses locally grown natural fibres combined with the finest leather to produce beautiful basket bags handmade by skilled artisans recently released a covetable collection of varying shapes and styles of basket bags.
ÉKÉTÉ which means basket in the Igbo language is so much more than its literal meaning, it represents the beauty and strength of a woman and the bond she shares with the people in her life. The brand prides itself on its modern take on an age-old traditional craftsmanship.
According to the statement following the release:
Baskets are malleable, intricately woven into different forms, shapes, and sizes whilst possessing a lasting staying power, these same qualities apply to women of all ages and race.
Our debut Spring/Summer’18 collection was inspired by our love for fashion, culture, and travel, and the burning desire to always carry a piece of home with us wherever we go. These summer bags are fun and colourful, as they are the perfect accessories for vacations, getaways to the beach and all your favourite summer activities. They also work perfectly to compliment your everyday style all year round.
