If you haven’t seen all the excitement leading up to this giveaway (and is still ongoing, by the way), where have you been?!? Just kidding… In a nutshell, Akaawol has been working day and night on a fabulous and never-been-seen-before hand-knotted sling bag just so that he can give it away to a hopefully appreciative and deserving winner. About 100 skeins of embroidery floss and possibly a month of work will have gone into the bag by the time it’s complete, and anyone who’s been following his progress on Instagram will testify to just how amazing it’s turning out to be.

If you would like to check out other #notjustknots creations, from friendship bracelets to barefoot sandals and other bags that Akaawol has previously made, do check out the Carousell shop here (especially if you’re in Singapore) and on the web here as well, and feel free to make a purchase or get in touch if you would like to commission an item for yourself or as a gift.

Anyhow, back to the matter at hand. When THE BAG is finally completed, Akaawol will be handing it off to BC Hands, the person who has kindly sponsored the quality string that’s being used, to pick the person who will get to actually wear the bag. Please check out the hashtag #akaawol_bchands_giveaway on Instagram for photos that document what’s been going on.

And for everyone else who is here because YOU want to win the fabulous bag that is currently in the making, here is what you have to do to qualify:

(By the way, you may feel like we’re asking for a lot, but guess what, this is a huge giveaway - after all, this is the first of three bags that Akaawol has made that he’s willing to part with! - and we think it’s justified! If you don’t feel the same way, then please don’t feel obligated to join the contest and give those who really want to win it a better chance. If you’re one of those wonderful people, please read on!)
