#BUYAFRICAN: You Are Out Of Touch If Don’t Own One Of These Hook’d By Atsupe Bags! Made-In-Ghana At Its Best
We are here once again to give you another stunning and fabulous reason to put down your ugly Gucci bag. Despite the continuous growing control of social media to bury African fashion and plaster mainstream high-end fashion to our faces, there is always room to discover real gems, and one discovery we just made is these adorable must-haves made-in-Ghana bags.
The bags belonging to the brand ‘Hook’d By Atsupe’ are an exhibition of creativity at their best. Africa hosts many creative bags, some cultural, some edgy, some casual, and so forth, but there is a distinctive uniqueness about the Hook’d by Atsupe bags that emits a forward motion in the field of Ghanaian fashion and style.
To elaborate a bit more, with the growing use of social media, there is so much influence from foreign countries, that it is not easy for creatives to look into a unique direction of their own, tapping and merging their ideas with desired styles from across the globe.
However the idiosyncratic speaks to that which is unseen anywhere before. This is not just a ‘African print’ remake of something we have seen before, or a ‘let me add cowry shells’ to a western design approach. Hook’d by Atsupe bags are catered with astonishing unique features.
Some of the bags see wooven fabrics threading into unique carved wood designs. And then there are the impeccable see-through bags and much more. Check out more snaps below we snatched from their Instagram page (@hookdbyatsupe).
