  • Insider Notes

    • Inspired by traditional Nigerian attire, NKWO’s Cactus Agbada fuses time-honored craft and modern glamor. It’s made from the prestigious Aso-oke fabric—woven on hand-operated looms with a contrasting side panel—and has a feminine V-neck, wide sleeves, and a dramatic asymmetric hem. Playful embellishments and interesting textures lend the look a bohemian feel. Take cues from the brand and style yours with a crisp white shirt and platform sandals.

      - V-neck, wide sleeves, asymmetric hem, raffia appliqué, mirrored glass tile detail
      - Cotton blend
      - Created by local artisans using innovative waste-reduction practices, such as recycling and fabric manipulation
      - Each piece is made to order and may take up to 4 weeks to complete

Sustainable brand NKWO relaunched in 2012 in Nigeria, with a focus on the preservation of traditional craft while curbing the damaging effects of textile waste. Each ready-to-wear piece is crafted using traditional West African weaving, beading, hand-dyeing and embroidery. The designer created her own fabric—using a modern strip weaving technique—dubbed “Dakala.” This hand-loomed upcycled fabric has a distinctively rich feel and is featured in each collection.
