The decorative beading work of these beautiful bags is handcrafted by a small group of Ndebele granny’s in support of their local Ndebele community. The bag is made from the finest leather, tanned and manufactured on site at our leather manufacturer in South Africa. The bags are luxuriously lined with the best quality zips and buckles.
The Ndebele tribe is one of the 11 indigenous tribes of South Africa. They are distinctly different with their colorful garments, unique beadwork and elaborate artwork around their homesteads. I have had the privilege to work with the Ndebele mammas for several years now. This culture is rich in history with tales and meaningful insights I will share with you on my blog.
Your purchase is directly influencing the upliftment of artists in this rural community. Each bag comes with a story of the artist who beaded and crafted it, for you to cherish.
This style bag is a very practical travel bag. It is the perfect size to fit your travel documents, sunglasses, small water bottle and other necessities. It slides over your shoulder so your hands are free. If you are in the field, in the city or on safari, its perfect company on your excursions.
