Being Nigerian – whether residing on African or diasporan soil – guarantees you’re likely to have peculiar items in your home that screams, ‘I AM NIGERIAN!!!’ One of which is the Hausa handmade basket. Used as a storage, no one ever really thought past its orthodox prosy-usage, that is until designer, Bugu Ogisi, broke the jinx. Her recent collection – which she showcased at the Heineken Lagos fashion and design week – incorporates these basket-like handbags.
We applaud the creativity but we leave you to decide… yay or nay? Would you be rocking these?
