    • The ultra-feminine Aja Clutch, in pink stonewash, was named after a West African female deitywho held mystical secrets of the forest. The pretty pink ostrich skin, sustainably sourced as a by-product of South Africa's existing free range farming industry, stirs thoughts of botany. The handmade, 18 karat gold-plated hardware, makes this piece an unrivalled luxury staple. It comes with a

South African entrepreneur, sustainability advocate, and designer Hanneli Rupert noticed a plethora of African-inspired goods while living in London, but realized few were actually produced on the continent. In 2008 she launched Okapi, her handbag and accessories label in Cape Town, showcasing South Africa’s expert artisanry and natural materials. The brand has since been recognised for pioneering the use of African game skins including Bleskbok leather, which is ethically sourced as a sustainable byproduct of the country’s pre-existing farming industry.
