Made In South Africa
Regular price $525

Handbag made from byproduct springbok hide, byproduct cow leather, gold-plated hardware, magnetic closure, suede lining, interior pocket, and adjustable strap. Each mohawk has its own personality. This full grain leather is unsealed and wears beautifully, showing markings and creating a patina unique to its owner.

Approximate Dimensions: 7.5"w x 7.5"h x 3"d plus 19" - 21" strap drop
Avoid contact with water, oil, hand cream or other staining liquid. The cow leather can be cleaned using normal leather care products; to clean the springbok panel, gently wipe with a damp cloth and allow to slowly air dry. Store in a dust bag in a temperate environment. Zip all zippers and fill with tissue paper to maintain shape. The Mohawk bags should be stored open and laid flat.

In an old industrial building filled with artisan workshops in Cape Town’s Woodstock neighborhood, a young designer works with her small team to craft leather handbags in classic shapes with unexpected, bold features. 

The handbags are made with the highest quality cow, ostrich, and springbok hides that are a byproduct of the food industry – paired with sustainable materials from across Africa, such as recycled brass hardware.

Each design is carefully constructed over a couple of weeks by a close-knit group of five leatherworkers with multi-generational expertise. The workers receive competitive wages, commensurate with their knowledge and skill.  

With sustainability in mind, she designs handbags created to last.
