The StoryBringing love and luxury back to traditional craftsmanship heritage
Thank you Shekudo for my beautifully crafted earrings and sandals. The quality exceeded my expectations and arrived beautifully packaged as well. I will definitely order again!
I received my order last week and I absolutely love it, probably one of my favourite shoes I currently have, no bullsh&t. A lot of compliments, you’ll definitely be seeing another order from me soon.
Ps: I love the little gift too currently using it everywhere.
Shekudo, originally the brainchild of childhood friends Amy (Akudo) Iheakanwa and Shetu Bimpong was birthed out of Akudo’s living room in Sydney, Australia. Drawing on their heritage, life experiences and love of the design process, the pair aimed to to deliver original, timeless and meaningful garments.
Now under the sole creative direction of Akudo, the brand moved its base across the Indian Ocean to commence production in Lagos Nigeria in the hope of shedding more light on the local craftsmanship 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 promoting a sense of caring, empowerment and celebration among women across the globe as well as allowing its wearers to push boundaries, stand out and know that their Shekudo item is responsibly made with traceable origins.
The SheKudo brand prides itself on being a socially responsible label as well as an advocate for slow fashion and women’s empowerment.
Join us on our journey as we deliver thoughtful, traceable hand made products from one pair of hands to yours.
