The vision behind Okapi is to produce luxurious, artisanal handbags and accessories entirely handmade in South Africa from locally sourced materials. A simple approach to creating honest and sustainable job opportunities and skills growth locally.
Every element of an Okapi bag is entirely traceable, sustainable and ethically sourced. Wherever possible we choose to work by hand and place a particular emphasis on nature conservation throughout the whole production process.
Okapi products are luxurious and unique. They are built to last a lifetime and designed to grow with their owner in meaning and character over time. We do not believe in fast fashion but in owning carefully selected pieces, which you will be able to customise and add on to over time.
