Kunmi Otitoju is the founder of Minku Leather Goods, which is an African luxury brand that produces leather bags and accessories for both men and women. The fashion designer and entrepreneur has two Computer Science degrees, but her passion has always been Fine Art.
Having lived in the US and in Europe, Kunmi Otitoju’s style is a beautiful amalgam of western elements, and sub-Saharan mystique. This led her to create a collection of luxury bags made with high-quality spanish leather, but also incorporated an African hand-loomed type of textile, traditionally woven by the Yoruba people, called ‘aso-oke’.
With workshops in Barcelona, as well as in Lagos, Minku is a modern company that appreciates and celebrates artisanal skills and authentic cultural elements! It is important to note that Kunmi actively takes part in every aspect of the production process, like an artist should.
We love Minku’s sustainable and ethical profile, and we definitely want to see this wonderful company become even more successful!
