APRELLEDUANY, Luxury Leather Goods Line
APRELLEDUANY is a luxury leather goods line, which was founded by Aprelle Duany, an African-American designer who currently lives in Nairobi. Her luxury line is designed in Africa, but it is produced in Europe. It is inspired by women of color and it celebrates their beauty and spirit.
APRELLEDUANY’s bags all feature african women’s names, such as Hattie, Miriam, Maya, Maathai, among others, which are inspired by important and inspiring african women, and pioneering women of color.
Her bags feature suede interiors, and are made of calfskin, although exotic skin choices are available upon request. The brand produces three collections each year, with prices ranging from $500 to $3,500.
Handmade techniques and technologically advanced processes like 3D printing are used in order to create these luxurious, gorgeous bags.
