It’s always a good time to make a statement through fashion and the tote bag is one that speaks loud and clear.
For a super stylish take on the tote bag, one of “understated elegance”, check out the Agola Leather Tote bag from Koko by Khakasa. Made from buffed top grain leather, the Agola tote bag is available in tones of grey and black, chestnut and mocha, and tan and chestnut, all of which come with a Kitenge or Kikoy lining. Featuring an inside zip pocket, this tote bag will keep your essentials safe and you looking stylish.

Printed Cushion Covers by Glo Creations
Your home and/or office environment says as much about you as your personal fashion style. Inviting people into your home or work space, is inviting them in to get to know the real you – what colours uplift you, what design pieces and knick-knacks inspire you, the stories behind special furniture pieces and family heirlooms, your preference in art, music and literature, etc. So, if you’re thinking of reinventing your wardrobe for the spring, you may also consider giving your apartment or office a little revamp for a new, seasonal feel.
Printed cushion covers such as these afro-centric designs by Rwandan brand, Glo Creations, are the ideal way to add a new splash of colour to your space. Available in tones of blue, red, orange and beige, you can opt to buy into all colour-schemes and mix and match to your heart’s desire or make your sofa pop with cushion covers in one colour. Whatever you go for, we trust these cushion covers are the accents your office/living space was waiting for!
