If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen a post featuring these beautiful bags that I done be fawning over. Earlier this year I met a wonderful woman named Tsakani Mashaba, a perfect fusion of business acumen and creativity in one very pretty head. I know her for casually creating a men’s skincare range called Michael Mikiala Men a few years ago you know, just because and now the sensational range has become a household name in South Africa because it’s sold at Edgars and is specifically targeted for the skin of black men. This year, she designed and is launching a handbag range that has had people gaga since some of us got our hands on it. I carried the below weekender this weekend and literally had people stopping to ask for pictures and all my friends weak at the knees! She’s asked me to come on board to help her launch this brand and I could not be happier. We’re working on a global and online launch of the range in the coming months. Soon you’ll know where to get em, prices and of course, a chance to see the whole range. These pics are just to whet your appetite to the talent that exists in these Jozi streets. Don’t you just love the Ndebele inspired print? The bags are pure leather and the printed ones a combination of canvas and leather. Oh by the way, quality wise, you will receive your life served back to you in the form of a handbag! The name to look out for is Ham Ethop. You can follow the developing story on Instagram and of course, right hurr!
