About

...Thoughtful accessories for the spirited Woman. Ethically made in & around the beautiful chaos of Lagos, Nigeria...

 

Shekudo is the brainchild of Sydney based pals Shetu Bimpong and Amy (Akudo) Iheakanwa. Drawing on their heritage, life experiences and love of the design process, the pair started out in Sydney, Australia aiming to to deliver original, timeless and meaningful garments.

Now with a focus on accessories and under the sole creative direction of Amy Akudo, Shekudo is now based in Lagos, Nigeria in the hope of shedding more light on the local artisan craft and handwork while integrating some of the age old techniques and overlooked local resources into its own contemporary aesthetic. 

The brand intends to establish a global Shekudo sisterhood, allowing its wearers to push boundaries, stand out, reflect exclusivity and know that their Shekudo item is responsibly made with its own unique story to tell. 

SheKudo is much more than just a fashion label, it is a socially responsible label  and supporter of the #slowfashion movement.  In its journey, the brand hopes to place further emphasis on fostering the empowerment and development of women through the brand + promoting a sense of caring and celebration among women across the globe.

Join us on our journey as we deliver thoughtful, traceable hand made products from one pair of hands to yours.
