“We create everyday luxury, handcrafted to last longer”

Our Story

Nanma has been an extension of me for as long as I can remember. It is very personal, it expresses my way of life- authentic, elegant, and chic. Nanma was born out of a desire to enjoy quality luxury leather goods. The idea of manufacturing handmade leather goods in Nigeria is daring.

For someone who is risk-averse, I must confess that this has been the biggest whirlwind adventure of my life – restructuring my brand, working with several Talents -and counting more disappointments and L’s than I thought I could withstand.

Experiencing the culture of mediocrity and shoddy workmanship in this journey has ironically affirmed to me that there would always be people like me, who would not settle for less than excellent craftmanship.

I can’t say how many thoughts go through my mind everyday – thoughts of excitement, fear, worry, joy, optimism – all mixed up in one but I’m thankful.

I’m thankful for God, strength, hope and support. I’m thankful for the lack of support too, It’s crazy how that only drove me to push harder. I’m glad I’m here and still pushing the barriers on authenticity one bag at a time. I feel blessed and I’ll like to invite you to join me and be a part of this journey.
