Design Mania: Handmade Fashion Accessories From The Visual Diary Of Adele Dejak

Adèle Dejak is a brand that creates handmade fashion accessories including bags  inspired by African shapes, textures and traditional techniques. Its impossible not to love the exciting way the brand displays their accessory collections, a visual expression of the brands’ acute appreciation for African-made fabrics, including Kuba cloth and kitenge (wax print). Adele Dejak  is dedicated to exceptional quality, using recycled materials including rice and cement sacks, brass, aluminium and glass and employs some of the most talented artisans in the East African region.

The designer found herself intrigued by the natural beauty of horn and begun to experiment with techniques of creating unique shapes and fashioned pieces. Adele Dejak has now grown into a wide range of handmade items. Sandals, bags, belts, clothing…and the accessories being their most prominent pieces.
