YMC Exclusive: The Togo Bag


Meet Florence Allotey, known to her friends and family as ‘Nanna’, she was once a house builder in Ghana but she now works with a small group of women from Sokode in Togo to produce amazing hand woven bags. Each one features unique African designs and colour schemes and is made entirely from 100% recycled plastics. Nanna sells the bags at the infamous Makola Market in Ghana’s capital, Accra. On a friend’s recent trip to meet Nanna (Nanna is her actual grandmother), she agreed to produce an exclusive collection for YMC and we couldn’t be happier with the final bags she sent over. They’re currently only stocked in our London stores, so pop by and dig out your favourite one!
