Who? What? When?
Lakay Designs opened its doors in 2015, drawing upon her love of cooking, home making, and valuable skill set developed throughout her career, the owner was ready to put it all to work in starting her own business. She identified a need in the African community, and thus was born Lakay Designs.
Of course there is more involved than just identifying a need. The owner regularly found shopping in outlying communities for the perfect home decor and accessories very different. Seeing the opportunity for an untapped market with great potential she and her family began the research stage of the business planning.
The owner began the necessary research. The owner’s family played a crucial role in supporting and helping her on this endeavor. Her family has been instrumental and encouraging throughout the journey.
But this adventure is just getting started for the owner and Lakay Designs. The Lakay Designs staff are taking the time to do the research and product knowledge to give customers the best quality available.
How do we do it?
Lakay Designs have engineers who design the products we manufacture; they improve the manufacturing process to increase efficiency and quality.
Lakay Designs buyers purchase materials to make the goods we produce. Our team finds and purchase quality African print materials used to manufacture our products.
The Movers & Shakers
Lakay Designs assemblers and fabricators use tools, machines and their hands to assemble pieces and goods on the manufacturing line to complete your finished product.

I got my apron and pillow a few months back. As much as I use the pillow, it has not gone flat. I highly recommend this company. ~ Cidre
Why are we offering pre-orders?
1. Save time and effort
Offering pre-orders on our own website & through BBNomics allow us to make our customers happy and provide quality products to the general public. During this campaign we are offering Oven Mitts, Pot Holders, Place-Mats, Aprons and our New Africa Comfy Travel Pillow (which can be used for home decor as well). Also, during this campaign we include shipping with all pre-orders. So, go ahead help us grow!
2. Expand our fan base
Our campaign is an exciting event, not a store. We think it’s a good idea to retain the sanctity of this event, too. By offering pre-orders we increase the excitement of this event— BBNomics is a way for us to allow more people to support our companies growth.
Our pre-order backers have access slightly different pricing options for your support, as rewards. We’re just allowing more wonderful people access and broadening the reach of our company.
