“I have a love for fashion, and I wanted to create items inspired by African cultures”

Tukabijoux offers a diverse range of versatile bags, head wraps and caps that are handcrafted from local materials. The Tukabijoux brand was borne out of the owner’s passion for fashion and appreciation for the diversity of African cultures. The owner expresses this art in the form of African print products. All her fabric is procured from markets and vendors that are from disadvantaged backgrounds to help them earn a living. She works with a team of 8 in a very casual environment that encourages creativity, and each team member is offered flexibility to come up with their own design.
