LEATHER LEGACY – CCL FEATURES ON THE COVER OF THE PREMIER BIDVEST MAGAZINE
On the cobbled walkways of trendy De Waterkant Village in Cape Town lies one of South Africa’s best kept secrets, Cape Cobra Leathercraft – an exclusive showroom displaying a tradition of timeless exotic leather handbag creations spanning the past four decades.
“Manufacturing an exotic leather handbag is an intricate and timely process, not only because it is handmade, but also because each skin is unique in its pattern, scale composition, and scars. We pre-select our skins and allocate them to specific designs, allowing the perfect culmination of design and the natural beauty of the skin. No two pieces will ever be the same and that is what gives exotic leather goods its luxurious allure.” – Justine Schafer
“South Africa remains a country blessed with an abundance of raw materials of which Nile crocodile and ostrich are most important to us. We are constantly working with fellow local suppliers to enhance a culture of best practices, along with aiming to accelerate local beneficiation with the view of furthering job creation and ultimately building a competitive, viable, and world-class industry in South Africa.” – Robert Schafer
