We are so honoured to be comissioned by the Desmond and Leah Legacy Foundation to design a bag for them. The foundation is a large South African charity, founded by the legendary Desmond Tutu, that counts many international philantropists, political and cultural leaders amongst their supporters, including Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey, Angelina Jolie and other amazing women. The clutch we designed is named “Leseli”, which means “Light” in the African language of Sotho, and stands as a symbol for lighting a candle of hope. Leseli is made using 100% sustainable farmed South African ostrich produced by Klein Karoo, and a percentage of global sales of the bag is donated to support the Foundation’s charitable work. The bag can be already now exclusively pre-ordered on our website in 6 colours, so make sure to check it out and put it on your Christmas wishlist :)

We are in love the sleek Diana, or Diana 2.0 as we dubbed it in the office :) This is the relaunch version of the original Diana, the very first ostrich clutch
that launched Naledi Copenhagen back in 2010. Since then, this simple yet chic clutch adorned the hands of many stylish women around the globe. The new relaunched model has a long flap, sharp corners, and is beautifully finished with leather lining and credit card pockets inside. The look is simple and clean, designed to add class and sophistication to any outfit. Like its popular predecessor, this ostrich clutch is handcrafted and comes in a range of beautiful colours, from neutrals to brights. The first 6 colours – Wine
, Chilly Red
, Blue Jean
, Hydrangea Blue
– have already arrived and will be launched very soon at one of Copenhagen’s iconic shopping destinations, Bindesbøl.
We are very proud of the fact, that our bags are handcrafted in sustainable, 100% farmed South African ostrich. We are committed to promoting ostrich as a better, sustainable alternative to other “exotic” leathers, many of which come from either wild or endangered species. Thank you all who has supported us on this journey ❤ We hope that the new model will get lots of love and find its way to some of your Christmas wishlists!

We love the beautiful photography and the sophisticated sense of style by Igrien from the Dutch / international fashion blog The Avantguardian. Check out her recent post about a trip to LA, called LA Confidential (also one of our all time favourite movies) with some amazing photos of her Naledi Copenhagen yellow ostrich box clutch. We love the bright yellow pop of colour on a classy monochrome outfit.
The box clutches are made with either satinated gold hardware, like Igrien’s piece, or with satinated gun metal, as on the photo above. The frames are handcrafted in solid brass in Spain, while the beautiful chains are sourced from Italy. The inlays are made in 100% sustainable South African ostrich leather. Lots of beautiful colours are available, including the possibility to custom-order yours with different colours on front and back. Explore our ostrich clutches her.

We had a blast last night at the super stylish Mini Cooper showroom in Aarhus, where 50 women were invited to an exclusive event, celebrating the iconic Mini Cooper. The guests had a chance to test drive a Mini with a professional racing driver, and spend a couple of blissful hours submerged into the athmosphere of beauty and design. We were happy to be invited to present Naledi Copenhagen at the event. After all, what better bag can you possibly have in your sparkling new Mini :)

How elegant and classy is this look! Actress Ellen Hillingsø shined at the royal gala dinner, hosted by the Queen of Denmark to celebrate her 75th Birthday.
