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

Carefully hand crafted 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.
