Handcrafted Quality

The Makers

The Manufacturing group, situated in one of Cape Town's oldest and most iconic districts, is led by an expert professional, who is as passionate as we are about enriching each hand-selected member of her all-woman team, and one man, the patternmaker and star-cutter. Over the past 5 years she has empowered them to become independent, proud leaders in their own communities.

With her philosophy of 'each-one-teach-one' comes the transfer of skill and knowledge required to make contributions on all levels within their communities. We recognize and support this. We are extremely fortunate to contribute to this effort through the manufacture of our beautiful Nguni Handbags.


To describe the close relationship Zulu people have with their beloved cattle, on can use the term symbiotic. Man reliant on beast, beast reliant on man. However, the close bonds that cleans built with their herd extended beyond dependency - it encompassed pride, mutual respect and love for their animals. It is in this spirit that we carry forward a product that is sustainable through the whole supply chain.

All our hides bare the stamp of authenticity. One of our key-roll partners is situated in rural KwaZulu-Natal. Thorough attention is paid to every production step. This stamp of authenticity endorses our constant pursuit of quality, sustainability and reliability. We are committed to a 100% sustainable process throughout the entire supply chain.
