Shipping & Returns
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.
