ZASHADU BAGS: Nigeria’s Chanel

Chanel has NOTHING on Zashadu, the Nigerian luxury female bags brand except that it is Chanel. Zashadu bags are carried by celebrities like Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche, Agbani Darego, Dakore Akande, Lisa Folawiyo, Eku Edewor, Zainab Balogun, etc. Aficionados of Zashadu are buying an enchanting mix of the best of contemporary design, delicately processed exotic leather of outstanding quality and ancient techniques of leather-work. Zashadu sources goatskin from Kano and Sokoto as well as python skin from snake farms in the region. While luxury brands like Louis Vuitton and Ralph Lauren buy leather from the same sources in northern Nigeria but ship abroad to process, Zashadu, a global brand with a Nigerian heart, has successfully trained a community of artisans in Lagos and Kano to produce world-beating quality leather. Ancient techniques of tanning and leather-dyeing from the North has been incorporated into modern methods. The brand is stocked by high-end boutiques in cities like London, Miami, Dublin, Johannesburg, Paris etc. Zashadu maintains a Lagos store at No. 60 Norman Williams Street, Ikoyi, Lagos.

Zainab Ashadu, the brains behind the brand, fell in love with bags at age 10 and by the age of 21, she had a collection of over 200 vintage bags. After spending years in London, she returned to Nigeria in 2010 to establish Zashadu. This is a luxury brand many Nigerians can aspire to even if all you buy is a ₦45,000 clutch bag.
