Special Items CURATED Just FOR YOU



Okapu finds pride in embracing traditional weaving techniques into its handbag designs. Back in the day, grandmothers in the Akamba tribe would come together with their daughters and granddaughters, in song and dance, weaving beautiful goods for their homes. They would use fibres from the sisal plant that grew wild and free all around the community. From bags for the hunters to simple kitchen essentials; it was a time to bond, to create and solve problems as a collective. Each of our bags is a testament of such a time.
