Our handbags are designed to last a lifetime and we understand that sometimes you would like to enjoy a new colour or style.

We can help you to trade your bag in for the new style by selling it through our very own Depop shop. Of course the bag should be in tip-top shape. Once we have found the new owner your bag will be shipped out to them. Not only will we offer you a 10% discount on your new handbag but also 100% of the money raised will be added to your SHERENE MELINDA account with a discount voucher to spend on that new handbag you were after!


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.
