Nguni cattle skins were traditionally used as war shields by various ethnic groups. Each king favoured specific colours for his worriers which gave us the rich diversity in pattern and colours available today.
This tiny bag is big enough to carry everything you need yet small enough not to loose anything you need. And it's quick and easy to get to it all.
The fittings on our Calvinia Mini Nguni handbag is all made from solid brass, which will make them last as long as the rest of your bag, at least one lifetime.
We added a small pocket to keep those very important items, like your smart-phone.
Every skin has it's own unique pattern, so every single bag is 100% unique.
This tiny bag as soooooo many stitches, each and every one made by hand, a true sign of the love and care given by our craftswomen.
Every item crafted in Els & Co.'s studio is made from start to finish by one craftswomen and she proudly signs her artwork by embossing her initials onto the leather. So a beautiful bag made by woman for a woman.
