Shekudo is a women's accessories brand designed by Nigerian creative director Akudo Iheakanwa. By producing in Lagos, Nigeria the brand's goal is to shed more light on the local artisan and craftsmanship scene while integrating age-old techniques and overlooked local resources into its contemporary aesthetic. Shekudo works hard to make sure that the majority of its raw materials can be found or produced locally. The brand currently includes local leather and traditional Aso Oke/Akwete cloth for its shoe uppers, local cotton for the dust bags, as well as wood, and brass. The brand is building a global Shekudo sisterhood, promoting a sense of caring, empowerment, and celebration among women across the globe, allowing its wearers to push boundaries, stand out, and know that their Shekudo item is responsibly made with traceable origins. Shekudo is a sustainable brand so each product is made to order by skilled artisans.
