Ankara African Print Bags: TÓTÉ CLASSICO by Bola Obileye

TÓTÉ Vince Bag
Hello People,
A while back I mentioned that I had been working on my new handbag collection which I promised to show y'all. The collection is aptly named 'TÓTÉ Classico' as it features tribute bags to some of my favourite classic bags as well as some fresh new designs that I would like to become TÓTÉ signature classics.. 
Making bags in Nigeria is a great challenge given our limited resources, machinery and expertise, it's a huge learning curve for us at TÓTÉ  but we continue to take one step at a time, learning and adapting our production to the reality on ground. As you can imagine we endure a lot of wastage in our aim for perfection but we continue to strive to create handbags of great quality and although it's tough...I remain very very proud of our heritage that our handbags are made on "NIGERIAN SOIL".....
Today, it is my joy to share with you all my second collection of Ankara (and leather) bags... TÓTÉ Classico..
