This bag is for a go getter, armed with ambition and a vision for their future. This lady works hard, plays hard and covets the very best things in life. Like all women who buy our bags, she is intent on ensuring her money goes towards job creation in her country, but also that she carries a bag and wears clothes that attest to that. SEDI is short for Lesedi and indeed she does light up any space she enters.

Carol has the honour of serving on the board of the Norval Foundation and is also the founder of the Mbokodo Awards for Women in the arts, so it is little wonder that we now have a second bag inspired by a ground breaking and much lauded art icon in South Africa. Dr. Esther Mahlangu is a much loved figure across the world and her geometric paintings adorn cars, aeroplanes, time pieces and now she has partnered with a local brand to release her very own bag. A true labour of love for Dr Esther Mahlangu who shares Carol's passion for bags.

The bag is available in Ostrich Shin, Ostrich Quill, Python and Crocodile.

Named after our founder Carol Lindiwe Bouwer, the Lindiwe Bag is the signature bags of the collection. This is the bag Carol carried through international airports around the world, while building this brand. This is the bag she carried into government and bank boardrooms, seeking funding for the bags, the ones she carried into hallowed halls convincing her family to back her desire to self-fund the bags and ultimately ended up at South Africa's premier One&Only hotel, which has now become the home of Carol Bouwer Bags. The Lindiwe Bag is a symbol of perseverance and is a constant reminder that we are becoming.

This bag is available in Ostrich Shin, Python and Crocodile.
