  • Summer ready with a Bee Bag

    We have a brand new selection of Bee Bags in stock, just in time for the summer, lovely weather and sunshine days.

    The Bee bag is so called because its great for buzzing around. For shopping, going to the park, books and magazines or to swap your trainers when you get to work (yes, we all do it!). Anything really, you make it what you want it to be. The wide straps make it a comfortable to carry on the shoulder.

    Choose between Ankara print or batik versions. Muted or colourful? What’s your flavour?

  • The Eco-friendly Tommy Tote

    Whether your are going to the supermarket or the beach, the Tommy tote is a pretty and practical accessory for you. Here is why. It is a spacious bag with a width of  about 50cm (20 inches) and a height of just over 30cm (12 inches). You can fit in your weekly shopping or your beach towel and bottles of sunscreen (whichever you may be lucky enough to be doing).

    The beauty of the tote is how easily it folds to a manageable size when not in use. Check it out below. A couple of steps and presto. A tiny little square (6 inches) which means you can tuck it into your handbag on the way to the supermarket or in a drawer when you get home. You’d not need to use plastic bags again!

  • Just In: Red, Black and Gold Aso Oke Tommy Tote- African Beach Bag

    A couple of years ago we started the A to Z Initiative where we upcycle fabric into new products. The idea is to make use of fabric that is still in good condition in products in the Urbanknit store. We then donate part of the proceeds from the sale of these items to particular charities that are close to our hearts. Red and Black Aso Oke Tommy Tote

    For this particular tote, the Aso-oke fabric for the outer fabric as well as the Ankara lining where both donated. Thank you Laitan and Mrs S! The Tommy tote makes a great beach bag and also serves as a great alternative to plastic bags when you go grocery shipping at the supermarket. It also makes a great weekend bag.

    The Tommy tote is roomy and comfortable to carry due to the wide straps. It also has 3 large inner pockets to store smaller items for easier retrieval.

  • The Afro Jubilee Shopper Tote

    This summer marks 60 years of The Queen’s reign in the United Kingdom and beyond. As the Diamond Jubilee celebrations kick off this weekend, we thought we’d give an African twist to the Jubilee celebrations and here it is.

    The Jubilee shopper is made using ‘Aso-oke’ which is a loom-woven textile from Nigeria in West Africa. It is hand woven and the finished strips are usually sewn together to make clothing. The textile is worn during special occasions like weddings, festivals, coronations and so on making it just the perfect material to use!

    This large shopper is roomy and perfect for a day out in the park as it’ll fit your blanket and everything else. It would also make a great alternative to plastic bags for your grocery shopping.
