The label is founded in 2016 by Buki Akomolafe. Her German/Nigerian heritage brings a diverse background of tradition, handcraft, design experience, and aesthetic vision. The designer spent her early childhood at the side of her father in Africa, who now manages an agricultural project in Nigeria (VPP Nigeria), which has allowed her to experience and appreciate a better conscious use of resources today.
