About us

The love of the craft and the zeal to add value to life of others was the starting point of Octoxii on October 12, 2007 as a leather crafting shop in Lagos, Nigeria. We have since then grown to become a company with two major subsidiaries, a foundation – whose sole purpose is to contribute to the development of our country by improving human capital resource which we believe will pave way for economic liberation; and a fashion firm – where we pride ourselves on being the No 1. trusted fashion brand when it comes to leather and craft. It is this focus that informs the services we provide and the decisions we make. We are a network of master crafters, happy people who are committed to proving their years of expertise by constantly having an edge in excellent leather craft production and human development services.
