Nigerian born and bred Kunmi Otitoju moved to the US at 17 for studies and work, and then to Barcelona to study and indulge in art in 2009. Her line of deconstructed scrap chic bag leather goods Minku, was launched in 2010.  It is based on a design philosophy that seeks to balance the tension between a minimalist, less-is-more aesthetic and a desire to fill life with color and patterns.

Most of the bags have leather on the exterior and vibrant fabrics like aso-oke, damask, or jacquard on the interior. This secret explosion of colors and patterns on the interior often provides the wearer with a secret reason to smile. Each item is handmade by the designer herself and she adds details like hand-made detachable leather pins, hand-stitched logo… Minku gets a pass mark from One Nigerian Boy for its witty and fun leather goods.
