It all started with a diaper bag. In 1992, having just
learnt how to use a sewing machine, Femi Olayebi decided to make a baby bag for
her first baby, who is now a beautiful 23-year old. Before she knew it she was
making diaper bags for friends and family. In 1994 she became what she calls
the 'accidental entrepreneur' and formed a company which she called My World of
Bags, continuing to produce bags of every kind - and loving it! From
outrageously colored handbags made from anything she could lay her hands upon,
there was no stopping her!
The company stable includes two distinct lines, the first, a leather handbag
line, FEMIHANDBAGS and the second, a functional and corporate line which takes
its name from the company, MYWORLDOFBAGS, and boasts a stunning range of
multi-function, ethnic-styled products such as conference bags and folders,
document holders, tech accessories and so much more.
And so, whether it's a leather tote, a sleek phone pouch, or a conference
folder, all the company's products fall within the niche of African-themed and
contemporary, and can always be distinguished by its individual signature
Every product is meticulously handcrafted in Femi’s design workshop in
Nigeria. A French graduate and translator by profession, Femi
consistently pours her creative energy into every product, paying great
attention to the minutest details, and looking to her culture for inspiration,
cleverly incorporating traditional elements (the traditionally hand-woven and
vibrantly colored Aso-Oke is one of her favorites) into sophisticated
silhouettes. For her, the excellence is in the details!
