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 :)
