  • Insider Notes

    • "Sustainably sourced out of blesbok leather in South Africa, this scarlet red clutch was named in honor of Aja: the West African deity of the forest. You can see why—the vivid color and hand-stitched details evoke thoughts of tropical rainforest flowers and lush textures. The clutch is adorned with with a talismanic Springbok horn charm with a contemporary weaving detail that was made in collaboration with ZenZulu; an eco-community craft group based in KwazuluNatal, a region on the South African coast. Wear for good luck and protection.

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.
