One sunny afternoon in 2005, I laid on a couch in my father’s living room, thinking of what next to do about my life when i caught a glimpse of a shiny sliver bead from the corner of my eyes. Then something whispered to me (i believe it was the Holy Spirit) saying “Idong, you can make that slippers”. From no where, i sprang up from the couch, ran towards the slippers and picked it up. It was a pair of slippers a neighbor had given to my mom as a gift from the US. I felt the slippers speaking to me about how it was made and that i should replicate her. I decided to take her to the local market (the old Tejuosho market) Lagos, Nigeria. I found the materials used to create the slippers and i tried to recreate her. After a few days, i succeeded. Ever since then, i never looked back.
Time travel to April 2014, i decided to quit my job and focus on passion of footwear making and accessory. It has always been my dream to build fashion brand in Nigeria that will be of global standards.
