Lagos Leather Fair

On the 2nd-3rd of June 2017, Nigeria hosted its first leather Fair at the Federal Palace Hotel Victoria Island.
I was particularly excited  about this because, who doesn't like leather? and as a certified buy-buy (aka shopaholic) it provided the  perfect opportunity to discover more INDIGENOUS brands to choose from.


I could write pages about this event, but that will be in another post where I share lessons I learnt from the fair. For now please enjoy the pictures from the fair.

Shoe Boxes at Fori Fori










They may look heavy, but they are all made from leather and very light weight




Cute baby sandals



Kijipa is the Yoruba word for Khaki


Very pretty wine rack
