ABOUT PRINCESS DEBOWALE ODUTOLA
Princess Debowale Odutola is the daughter of the late Ooni of Ife, Oba Okunade Sijuade, although she did not gain popularity by being a princess, rather she attained national prominence by making trend setting Bespoke fashion accessory  pieces.
The CEO of TPS luxury, one of the waves making fashion business in the country, Princess Debowale Odutola has had her bag pieces carried and worn by top personalities in the country, e.g. Chief Mrs. Folorunsho Alakija( Africa's richest woman).
The craft-woman has won two distinguished awards namely the FADAN and ACE awards.
Odutola inherited her creativity from her late grandmother who was skilled in crochet knitting and she, makes sure the final stages of the bags are done by her.






About the TPS LUXURY brand
The Potter’s signature (TPS luxury) came into existence in July 2014. It basically manufactures bespoke (hand-made) products like bags, slippers, luggages, umbrellas, belt, clothes etc. All made from local source fabrics like Aso-oke, Ankara, Damask. It is a craft made-in Nigeria in local ethnic fabrics and the leather pieces are naturally sourced.


According to Princess as she is fondly called ....."My bags don’t come cheap"..... and we can not agree more as they are specially hand made with rare finds of 100% reptile skin ranging from crocodile to snakes to the finest of avian finds of ostrich skin and the likes . Not to mention the extravagant use of swarovski crystals and natural sea pearls which sits the brand comfortably in the royal sect .

Its also interesting to know that these collectors items are all named in celebration of distinguished Nigerian women – women who had carved a niche for themselves in their various areas of endeavour. some of whom  are Folorunsho Alakija, Dr. Stella Adedevoh, Mrs Agaresse Arase, Dame Abimbola Fashola, Lady Debola Williams and many others.
