AAKS is a Ghanaian brand popularly known for their handmade weaved bags. They first came into the industry in 2014, and have since made a name for themselves and for their country.
Founded by Akosua Afriyie-Kumi, their mission was to introduce the world to Ghana women weaving techniques while at the same time creating and igniting sustainable jobs within Africa.

Their handbags are beautiful, colourful pieces which embody the history and culture of their country. While having a strong sense of identity and quality, each collection silhouette is unique and tells a different story through detail, colour and shape.
The brand not only takes their fans and followers through the bag making process but also tells a story with it. They are well known for putting their weavers in the spotlight.
This brand has also gotten recognition for adding the name of every weaver to the brand tag. This means that for every AAKs bag you buy, you can see who weaved your bag on the tag. This sort of personalization has made it well loved by the public.
They recently branched out to weaving lamps now, and we have to say; they are really lovely.
With stores across Africa and Europe, the AAKS brand is really one to watch out for.
