Chikizia Luitu is an independent brand which specialises in authentic and handcrafted African garments. Its focus is to bring the beauty and boldness of African fabrics together with trendy European fashion. By combining a mixture of these two worlds, Chikizia Luitu creates a perfect union of culture and couture. All of the pieces are designed and made by the brand owner, Tima Bangura, who is herself a European-African. She gained her inspiration for the craft of seam-stressing from her grandparents who were both tailors and she is proud to share this passion.
