The Maya Tote showcases the rich history and culture of Africa, and is also symbolic of the incredible journey of Black people in the United States.

Made with our handwoven Aso-oke fabrics crafted by artisans in the motherland but representing the colors of the BLM movement, we created the Maya Tote in honor of Black History Month.

    The Maya tote is made entirely with hand-crafted aso-oke from Nigeria, and it is perfect for errands and days when you're on the go. It has a spacious compartment and an internal pocket to keep small items separate. You can hold it by the two top handles, or style it crossbody with the detachable strap when you need to go hands-free.

    "I was inspired to start Olori by the beautiful cultures of my people. Growing up in Nigeria, I was always surrounded by traditional prints and textiles symbolic of deep roots and stories so dear to my people. I have always admired the art and craftsmanship behind them. By incorporating traditional African fabrics into contemporary designs, my mission is to invite people to experience the beauty of African cultures, giving them a place at the world stage and making them accessible to women all over the world."
