Luxury Handbags: Handcrafted Elegance

Are you looking for a bag that will make a statement? Then you will love the options we have curated for you. This is a selection of handcrafted handbags that epitomise style and sophistication. 

Karabo Kopong's (South Africa) leather handbags are a testament to her impeccable artistry and style and adding an African aesthetic to classic handbag styles. 

Enjipai’s (Tanzania) beaded creations are great for those who love beaded accessories and want a simple bag to fit in the necessities before going out. 

Eric Raisina (Madagascar) is famous for his haute texture textiles, made from silk and raffia! We are equally fans of his unique bags, which always add a touch of whimsy to an outfit.  

For a touch of global elegance, go with Yessin's (Nigeria) exquisite handbags. Using the finest leather, these are bags for those who want a multi-functional bag- great for the office and also for the weekend. 

Radiant Jewels that Captivate the Senses

Known by those who have discerning taste, Nikiwe Mathebula’s (South Africa) jewellery is truly one of the hidden treasures of South Africa's jewellery industry. Each piece is a captivating masterpiece, meticulously crafted to showcase the brilliance of precious stones. These jewels will undoubtedly become coveted heirlooms, passed down through generations. 

Hats: A Fashionable Statement that Transcends Trends

It’s summer, so of course you want to make a bold statement with a Malondié (South Africa) extra-large wide-brim floppy hat, which stole the show at Joburg Fashion Week. These hats, large as they may be, are for the unapologetic fashion lover who is OTT and always wants to be the moment. Plus, it protects you from the sun’s harmful rays, so that’s another reason to get the hat!

Jewellery That’s a Fusion of Tradition and Modernity

Embrace the beauty of copper jewellery with Adele DeJak's intricate creations, each piece a testament to her mastery of the craft.

For a touch of cultural vibrancy, explore Enjipai's beaded jewellery, where traditional African beadwork meets contemporary design.

These pieces will surely add a touch of individuality and flair to any ensemble.
