"Celebrate Black Women Day" is EVERY day at KA, so this Small Business Saturday, we decided to round up 10 of our absolute favourite black female-owned lifestyle brands!
So who got the KA stamp of approval?
Eponymously named for the undisputed Queen of luxury textiles, Banke Kuku brings you headbands to kimonos to pyjamas to soft furnishings. This is African print re-imagined!
An affordable vibrant lifestyle edit that puts the modern black aesthetic on the front row, The Cornrow made their debut in November of this year and they haven't looked back since! Their website is a treasure trove and their Instagram is a visual delight. We can safely say we're addicted!
We bet you never thought you needed a vintage aso-oke lip beach tote. Well, guess what, you do! And Aunt Harriet’s has got you covered with that and a whole host of quirky but fabulous accessories!
Head over to their Instagram for more details!
We are still bummed that we lost out on every single item in Zashadu’s Independence Day sample sale, and if you check their Instagram page you’ll understand why. Handmade clutches that are both modern and classic. 100% our style!
Visit the website and you won't be disappointed!
KOÉLÉ + ATWAZI
Koele + Atwazi create some of the most comfortable - and stylish - slippers ever for both women and men. AND they’re proudly custom-made in Nigeria.

From the creative force behind L’Espace (how many of our KA Day-Ones remember our first home?), Zazaii is taking African fashion labels to the world.
So Smith brings you timeless leather accessories made in Nigeria. We need to get our hands on that Sulit Clutch. Stat! Check out their Instagram here.
NOSH N NIBBLE
If you find your healthy eating habits slipping due to time constraints, check out Nosh N Nibble. Freshly made, colourful, delicious meals delivered to your door!
You’ve most probably tasted their canapés at one or more of the earlier KA events, but now Wildfresh Kitchen brings you Jungle Sauce. Already causing a stir in the UK, they just began shipping to Nigeria.

If you are looking for authentic cult skincare products in Lagos, from The Ordinary to Inkey List, Supply ECO is the place to go. On that note, we’re off to stock up on some hyaluronic acid!
