Being the fashionista that you are, we knew only the most stylist weekend bag would do, so we searched around and found one from Minku Designs that we think you'll love!

The Ado Weekender combines elements that are quintessentially Minku: the Eleko wave, a bright damask lining, hand stitching (80% of the bag is hand-stitched; can you spot the areas?) and a soothing colour mix. This bag combines elements of pure sophistication and ultra-femininity. The hand stitching and superb construction guarantee you will have this bag for years to come.

Minku is a Nigerian maker of quality goods established in 2011 and specializing in leather bags for men and women. Minku founder Kunmi was on a computer science research and consultancy path when she discovered her intense enjoyment of designing and creating everyday items. Kunmi was just named as one of "30 most promising young entrepreneurs in Africa 2014" in Forbes magazine.

Don't just take our word for it. Visit Minku Designs for yourself and take a closer look at the absolutely marvelous collection of leather bags. We promise you a breathtaking experience of beauty and refined artistry from Kunmi's point of view.
