Fall in Love With QuellyRue Designs

CulturalToast.com readers prepare to fall in love with QuellyRue Designs created by New Yorker, self-taught handbag and accessories designer Racquel Dwomoh. I stumbled across QuellyRue Designs via Tumblr and I was instantly amazed by her creativity to showcase natural black beauty on a tote bag. From her Janelle Monae tote to her successful and fan favorite Naturally Tote bag, these tote bags are must for any Ankaranista who appreciates Etsy’s creative African fashion designers! I love the Afro Woman tote for the simple fact that her natural hair is in the shape of Africa. Etsy is a treasure chest for Ankaranista! Oh did I mention that I’m addicted to Etsy? (Shout out to Noah’s Crew!) Priced at an affordable price point between $36 to $40, QuellyRue Designs has something for every Ankaranista on the go!
