Everyone Loves Their Olori Bags!

This is one of my favorite bag. It’s well made, the colors are beautiful and it is big enough to hold what I want it to hold. I get lots of looks when I am wearing this piece. It’s a must buy!

Racent C.

I constantly get compliments on it and I love knowing the story behind it, the incredible female founder's story, and the uniqueness of the fabric and style. I cannot say enough good things about Olori as a brand and this purse specifically; it is absolutely worth the price and one I plan to buy in every color!

Gretchen F.

The bag is elegant, and so versatile. I could carry this on a casual outing in jeans or on a date night with my husband. The colors are rich and the fabric has substance - it feels like this will retain its quality for years to come. Even opening the box was a delight - from the beautiful purple box to the gold logo on the dustbag. I absolutely love my new bag and I am looking forward to carrying it with everything.

Africa-Inspired

Olori was inspired by the beautiful cultural attires of the Yoruba people in Nigeria.  Aso-oke, the traditional African textile from which our bags are made is steeped in a rich history of celebrations. It is a fabric of great cultural significance, and its influence has spread far beyond the Yoruba tribe. 

By incorporating African fabric into modern design, our mission is to invite people to experience the beauty of African cultures, beginning with aso-oke. 

Made with Aso-oke

Aso-oke, which means “top cloth” in English, is woven by hand on traditional looms. These textiles are primarily worn for weddings, namings, and other important ceremonies. 

Aso-oke weaving is a centuries- old craft, passed on for generations among the Yoruba people. It is a testament to the creativity and timeless craftsmanship at the bedrock of our products.
