MINKU has been coined as the ‘Hermes’ of Nigeria. We agree, as MINKU carries a variety of refreshing and beautifully hand constructed leather pieces.

MINKU owner Kunmi Otitoju, a 30-year-old Nigerian fashion designer and entrepreneur, holds two Computer Science degrees – a Bachelor of Science degree with first-class honors from Howard University and a Master of Science degree from Virginia Tech. But her first love was Fine Art.

You can get her elaborate hand constructed designs including totes, cross body bags, bound leather notebooks, asymmetrical bags and much more here.

As a person running a business, I have found that optimism has helped me get far. If you combine an optimistic disposition with research and hard work, you can do great things.
