What is better than a furry handbag? They offer a way to store and carry your most precious items, but with a furry bag, you can also stroke it just like a pet! Ostrich 2 Love largely produce Ostrich bags and wallets which are highly sought after by international designers, but it is their furry bags that I fell in love with!
It is of course essential that the fur is ethically sourced and supports local, fair-trade workshops. Ostrich 2 Love handbags do just that. Being a small businesses in South Africa that hand pick the leathers and furs and then beautifully hand-craft the bags with exquisite detailing.
Sarah and Bob run Ostrich 2 Love and after visiting Bob’s family in South Africa in 2011, Sarah fell in love with the country, the people, the colours and importantly, the stunning array of ostrich leather handbags! They were both struck by the sheer beauty of the dyed ostrich skins and by the care and craftsmanship that went into the products and from this, Ostrich 2 Love was born.
