More Information We all require our mobile phones to be kept close at hand while simultaneously needing our hands to be kept free. The ‘Olwethu’ bag offers this light & nifty solution in a stylish way when hung across the torso. The beads are carefully handwoven in a structurally sound manner exhibiting colour and pattern in an aesthetic that is not curio but functioning art. Inspired by the stories told in Southern Africa’s past, the cultural heritage of beadwork is being kept alive.

The name of the bag is ‘Olwethu” which is a name of Xhosa origin meaning “Ours” or “Our love”. With our usual nod the South Africa’s unsung hero, our South African women, we name this beauty for any empowered woman who purchases with purpose.
