Your new bag deserves to be treated with care. When not in use, please store it away from direct sunlight, and use specialized cleaning and protecting products when caring for the leather. The mud cloth insert can be spot-cleaned as necessary.

Textile inserts have been handmade in Africa in communities where weaving and dyeing have been in existence for hundreds of years. Their slight imperfections add character to each bag, while still maintaining its quality. Leather may include beautiful original markings from the cow's life, such as scarring, welts, brand marks and more.

Handcrafted with care in South Africa.

Kente, known as nwentom in Akan, is a type of silk and cotton fabric made of interwoven cloth strips and is native to the Akan ethnic group of South Ghana. Akans refer to kente as nwentoma, meaning woven cloth.

At Chameleon Goods, all our textiles, including Kente cloth, are ethnically and sustainably sourced.
