Discovering Hidden Treasures – Handmade By Fundi

August 13, 2015

A little while back I went on a fun “Insta-drive” with the iStore and Mini – where we drove around Jozi, discovering cool spots of our city to snap.

On our little adventure into the heart of the city – Maboneng, I discovered a hidden treasure!



Tucked away in an unsuspecting building, I found a talented artist, hard at work, creating the most amazing, bold and graphic print clutch purses.


His name is Fundi and his label, simply called Handmade by FUNDI.

He makes unique African inspired pieces, entirely by hand (including cutting and stitching), using a combination of pure cow leather and striking, African print fabrics that are 100% cotton.

The result! Totally drool worthy, statement accessories that will no doubt, add interest any personality to just about any outfit!

His range not only includes clutches, but also shoulder bags, backpacks and laptop bags, earrings, necklaces and custom-made pieces.

I particularly LOVED the cute clutch purses! They were impeccably well made!




Such a great, proudly South African brand and such a talented artist!
