About me: It all started from pure love of African inspired crafts and handmade items.
Hi loves, my name is Tumi Owa and Afrocessory is my baby :). I started this shop in hopes to explore my creativity and what I could bring to the table that would represent my roots. I was never a crafty person but I was raised around crafty people. I was more of an observer than a doer. When I was growing up in Nigeria, my mom made me learn the art of braiding and sewing even though I was not interested. She saw these skills as ones that every girl should possess. My love for crafts however didn't surface until I got to America and started to observe how downplayed African fashion was in the country. This was what motivated me to start making African inspired products and the more I made them, the more I fell in love with them. This newly found love was what led me to creating Afrocessory Shop.
