KONA’s bags are made with an inspiration of tribal prints & geometric shapes. Most of their bags are created in shapes of SQUARE and CIRCLE where the latter Bags have become KONA’s signature pieces. The team at KONA paid tribute to the tribal clutch & CIRCLE bag when they collaborated with KWESH for the Kampala Fashion Week 2015. The square clutch was also the very bag that DIANA OPTI picked for her 100 DAYS OF AFRICAN FASHION.
3. 100% UG
Moving forward with our list, KONA has a special line in which they create luxury products sourced, designed, inspired & made in Uganda. For this particular line, KONA draws inspiration from Ugandan heritage like the cow horn from the Ankole cows and Fish leather from Jinja to locally sourced cow hides etc. This line is for people who appreciate the Natural products KONA uses & appreciate the story of its origin!
KONA alsocreates jewellery from horns as seen below. The jewellery was also showcased at the KFW 2015.
4. WOMEN’S WALLETS
Handbags can be bulky to carry everywhere but KONA phone wallets make it simple for girls who want to grab whatever they can and go to their aspired destination without wasting time. For a girl, sometimes you might just feel like grabbing & going. Interesting enough, these wallets come in lots of fun colors and they are minimalistic on the outside but pop when you open them. Very handy and one of KONA’s bestsellers.
5. MEN’S ACCESSORIES
If you are a man, dont feel left out. KONA has added something for you. With each addition in the last 2 years, KONA has strived to create an accessories’ brand that truly has a 360 approach. From their TIE LATTES brewed for men to their wallets that have been widely well received. Funny story behind the TIE LATTE is that, KONA found it difficult to find some decent tie packaging, which lead them to think outside the BOX.
KONA means corner in Swahili, Hindi and Luganda. With KONA, you will get the best of both the African vibrancy and Indian ethnicity and their products range from shoes, bags, wallets, textiles, patterns, beading and embellishments, from both places of inspiration.
