Nigerian handbag designers today, are digging deep into their talent box and coming up with fantastic handmade products which are really impressive. This is considering how far we have come from patronizing foreign-made products to looking inward to our own.
Not that there’s anything wrong in patronizing the foreign market/ brands but unlike in the past, brands are springing up strictly made in Nigeria, getting exposure and massive acceptance in the international market and the world.
