  • Just in: Vintage and Gold Aso-oke Clutch

    I created the Megasnap clutch to be a huge statement piece. That one accessory that will always be a talking point no matter what you wear. Whether it is to finish off your formal outfit or LBD or to add glamour to a casual ensemble, this is definitely the piece for you.

    It is made in a Nigerian fabric known as ‘Aso-oke’ which is a loom woven textile similar in texture and weight to denim or canvas. This particular version is an old-school vintage which is partly woven with lurex which incorporates a glittering metallic gold thread. This version is also quite special as the style is perforated and beyond the visible perforations is a layer of deep aubergine satin fabric. Satin, Aso-oke, Cotton; many layers one clutch!

    It is lined internally with a green and black Ankara print cotton fabric for that little bit of extra fun. It has several layers of padding to give it stability and to protect its contents. It is quite spacious and will fit a phone, money, keys, make-up, camera and a lot more. It has a handy strap making it easy to carry and has a small internal pocket.

  • Back In Stock: Lilac Petals Supersnap Clutch

    She’s baaaacccckkk. Said in a sing-songy voice. Well we listened to the feedback on the Lilac Petals Supersnap Clutch and have restocked this lovely clutch bag.

    The beauty we believe is in the detail as the large flower on the front of the purse is intricately embellished to give it that sparkly, dazzling look. Definitely a statement piece for that black tie event or dinner date!

  • Spotted In Urbanknit- Ebun

    For those who do not know, in Nigeria a wedding usually consists of two main events. One is the traditional wedding (often referred to as the engagement or ‘gage’). The other is the main wedding ceremony which would be in a church or mosque depending on ones religion. For the traditional ceremony both the couple and guests alike come in traditional attire often aso-ebi and it is usually a colourful affair full of food, music and fun!

    For her traditional wedding, Ebun wanted a clutch that would go with her Aso-oke outfit. As I love Aso-oke and a creative challenge I was more than happy to oblige. The Aso-oke for her outfit is a modern take on the traditional Alaari. The rest of her outfit was to be gold and the idea was to incorporate this idea into the bag.

    She gave me completely free reign and said I could go wild which was just perfect. The only must-haves were that the bag should be large and that it should have a strap so she could hold on to it easily throughout the day. So I made a megasnap clutch and mixed in plain gold Aso-oke and ignored all rules of symmetry!

    I was very happy with what we both came up with and even more excited when I saw how it all came together on the day! Even better was when she sent me a message after receiving the bag and SHE LOVED IT! Urbanknit loves you too.

  • Happy Independence Day to Ghana

    Wishing all our Ghanaian friends and fans a Happy Independence Day!

    It so happens that one of our favourite customers has just received her custom order of a Kente Supersnap Clutch. Kente is a gorgeous handwoven cloth from Ghana, similar to Aso-oke. We will definitely be experimenting with more very soon.

    Thanks Ivy for a very interesting project.
