About Stonecamp

All our handbags are handmade in Cape Town by a team of experienced craftswomen.  We source almost all our raw materials locally, supporting small businesses in the Cape, Natal and Johannesburg.  It has always been a pleasure to work with local manufactures, to learn and grow with them.   The owners, Liesel and Letitia, love creating beautiful bags sustainably, always treating everyone in the production chain with respect and care. 

This venture started on a sheep farm in the Karoo, the semi-desert part of South Africa where Letitia grew up. Her love for quality led to a dream of the perfect travel partner. Her father, a great leather-lover, introduced her to real nappa leather. This soft sheepskin leather was also turned into the first bag they made.  Today Stonecamp uses mostly cowhide and sequins to create fun practical handbags for every day use.
