Muuñ was born from a beautiful encounter between Tahiru who was developing the art of traditional straw-weaving and Audrey, a fashion consultant on the Japanese market. This was in 2004 in Nyariga, in northern Ghana, West Africa.
Years have passed and the beautiful encounters have multiplied and the family has grown. Leatherworkers, spinners, braiders, assemblers, seamstresses … from all over the world have joined the Muuñ adventure, all sharing the same values: respect for others and love of the material.
Inspired by Scandinavian design and the pursuit of Japanese purity, nourished by these cosmopolitan influences and beautiful encounters, Muuñ revisits the traditional straw bag turning it into a beautiful and timeless object. This reinterpretation is topped off with an accessory that is the brand’s signature: the pouch, which comes in many styles – wool, fabric, plain, colourful, zipped, knotted … – and has a life of its own!
