Designer Heritage Story

Shekudo, originally the brainchild of childhood friends Amy (Akudo) Iheakanwa and Shetu Bimpong was birthed out of Akudo’s living room in Sydney, Australia. Drawing on their heritage, life experiences and love of the design process, the pair aimed to to deliver original, timeless and meaningful garments.

Now under the sole creative direction of Akudo, the brand moved its base 8666 miles across the Indian Ocean to commence production in Lagos Nigeria in the hope of shedding more light on the local craftsmanship while integrating some of the age old techniques and overlooked local resources into its own contemporary aesthetic.

The brand intends to establish a global Shekudo sisterhood promoting a sense of caring, empowerment and celebration among women across the globe as well as allowing its wearers to push boundaries, stand out and know that their Shekudo item is responsibly made with traceable origins.

The SheKudo brand prides itself on being a socially responsible label as well as an advocate for slow fashion and women’s empowerment.
