Celebrating International Womens Day Friday 8th March  2019

On Friday 8th March, Women will be celebrated around the world during International Women's Day.

This is a global day in which recognition is made of  the talents and achievements of women from all over the world and in all aspects of society, at the same time promoting gender balance worldwide.

The first International Women's Day celebration (IWD) was in 1911 when a gathering of over a million people from Austria, Germany, Switzerland and Denmark took place in support of this celebration.

This year's theme is: Better the balance, better the world #balanceforbetter which is not just a theme to last for the day, but a continuing campaign for the whole year to help towards bringing greater gender-balance to our world.

As well as the many different IWD events that you can attend in support of this, there is also a very creative way to get involved through  the IWD Photo Competition. A perfect way to capture the essence and strength of women in their diverse roles and cultures.

However you decide to celebrate this special day - we wish you a wonderful International Womens Day.

Lets get the balance right!

MATERIALS

Our handbags are made using leather both inside and out. We use nappa leather on the outside and the handbags are lined with an ecofriendly (using no harmful chemicals or dyes) natural pigskin leather in the inside. This helps to make our bags incredibly soft and luxurious but also durable and longlasting.

For our signature feature that we have become known for we use genuine Springbok hair-on-hide leather. The ethical source of the materials is very important to us. Springbok are classified as non-cites (which means there is no threat to the survival of the species) and the animals live freely in abundance in South Africa. The sustainability of the species is carefully managed and the population is culled to keep the ecosystem in balance. The local food industry benefits from this and the by-products are also utilised in decorative ways in interiors, furniture and fashion.

All our leathers are a by-product of the food-industry.

We use only high quality YKK zips and silver-coloured metal chains, studs and handbag hardware.

All our handbags are offered with a white cotton dustbag to keep them clean.
