One of my all time favourite custom orders from the fabulous Ivy from Paris! Ivy had some beautiful Kente fabric that she got from Ghana and wanted it made into a Supersnap Clutch. A one of a kind order using woven traditional strip fabric from Ghana.

Ivy is always on point! Isn’t she so stylish? Urbanknit customers are just so cool. She always rocks her Urbanknit accessories with extra style. In this shot, she accessorises with her one of a kind Aso-oke Megasnap clutch. Love it!

Starting out on the embellishment of this batik piece for a floral purple clutch. Labour of love :) This takes about 3 hours before I even start assembling the bag pieces to sew.

The Print on Print look. How to- just keep adding your prints, be it African or floral or whatever. Stop when you are satisfied! The bold look is not for the faint hearted! This one is accessorised with our Golden Clove Ankara clutch. Would you?

Why settle for a boring interior. Add pops of colour to your living space! Don't be afraid to go bold with colour. Black and white can act as a base with red and yellow as hints to add the required POP! Our zebra pop cushions are a good point to start!
