MUJI founder Kate Tawo graduated with a Criminology degree from the university of Kent and runs a luxury consignment store till date. A year after moving back to Nigeria, she visited one of the major craft markets in Lagos. The skills of the craftsmen as well as the personal dedication they showed to the craft inspired her to combine this with the experience in luxury fashion to start a handbag brand with a strong 'Handmade In Nigeria' ethos. MUJI is a leather goods brand that epitomises precision craftmanship and style, proudly made in Nigeria
For Kate, creating leather goods is an intimate process, each MUJI bag is Made by hand and bears the finger prints of the person who fashioned it in our studio in Lekki, Lagos.
A strong emphasis is placed on authenticity, ethical values and craftsmanship during production ; while having a strong sense of identity and quality. We strongly believe one should never have to sacrifice durability for beauty, Kate is connected to every stage of the design and production process to oversee and ensure that the MUJI philosophy is built into every piece we make.
