Said Tweet came from The Economist’s correspondent Eleanor Whitehead, whose recent tour around Northern Nigeria included a visit to the city of Kano, where she met the team at the tannery.

It supplies Louis Vuitton” Garnering over 1,000 retweets, word of the factory spread fast, with one question arising: How is it that Nigeria can make such wondrous products and supply a global brand like Vuitton, yet struggle to sell such products internationally and create its own brands with the same magnitude? In contrast to news of the tannery’s success, the reporter also shared a shot of Kano’s closed shoe factory, captioning; “Sad sight of a non-operational shoe factory in Kano. It’s had to deal with a litany of problems in the past decade.” It brings the question when some argue that one can not label using waxed print as African fashion because the prints are not from Africa. Would that mean that Louis V is African fashion? #Lol Image source: @Nellwhitehead, Jaruma.net Read More On Nigeria designersfashionGod's Little Tanneryleatherlouis vuittonmade in nigeriamanufacturersnigerianigeriansproduct Share FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinWhatsappTelegramEmail Nana Tamakloe Founder of FashionGHANA.com and Accra Fashion Week.
