This bag is made from sheep leather sourced from Burkina Faso. The beautiful tie dye patterns are created by local artisans. The beauty of this piece is that it’s an everyday shoulder bag which can be carried everywhere.
Oye handmade bags are predominantly made from leather, African wax print, tie dye fabrics, kente fabrics; other woven fabrics all made in Ghana and parts of Africa and sometimes recycled cocoa sacks from Ghana and left over leathers from production houses in Italy.
Oye finds use for all those leather leftovers which are no longer useful for the factories in Italy after they make all the beautiful designer bags.
Unlike mass production bags, Oye bags are pieces of art with individual identities thus each bag is distinct and unique in every way.
Oye designs are captivating, truly African as well as contemporary and radiate the bright African Sun.
Oye works with local craftsmen who use their skill and market women who source for the fabrics.

Every item is handmade in Ghana.
