Ikavu offers handbags, baskets, and beaded jewelry which are beautiful, functional and handcrafted. The handbags and baskets are made from natural materials including sisal, baobab bark and naturally tanned leather.

Ikavu works directly with skilled weavers and artisans in East Africa and is involved in grassroots projects which give back to those communities.

About the Website

The Ikavu website features a clean, simple, and minimalist content-centric design which puts the focus on Ikavu’s colorful handbags and jewelry. The aesthetic is defined using a white background, grey typography, and careful letter-spacing in the logo, which is used in the main navigation.

The site was built with a fully responsive design, meaning it looks good and functions well on mobile devices and at all browser widths. The brochure-style site directs visitors to Ikavu’s Etsy shop for making purchases, while providing contact information for wholesale buyers. Designed with Ikavu’s growth in mind, the site was built for additional enhancements.
