The T Bag
The T Bag
T of course stood firmly for Tobeka. I have enjoyed her interviews over the years, I have loved her writing and our trips to New York, Amsterdam and elsewhere. I have grown taller in thought and in heart!
She is the only person that cab speak with authority on her gifts bestowed upon her at birth but what I can speak on is how blessed I am to know and love her! Thank you my friend for allowing me to honour the many people who feel excluded with this bag and thank you for embracing me and my work. You are beautiful, smart, eloquent and you educate me at every sitting! How blessed am I introducing Tobeka, the bag to remind us to speak also for those not in the room.
Skins and colours may vary so each skin has a unique marking.
Ostrich Quill – The bumpy leather and comes from the main part of the Ostrich. It is the back of the Ostrich where the animal’s neck meets it’s body. The bumps are where the feathers grew.
Ostrich Shin – This skin has a wide scaling down the centre length of the leg with a natural texture and brilliant shine
Python – Exotic skin because of the origins and it’s complicated manufacturing process. Python skin can last for decades with the attention to preservation and maintenance
Crocodile – Exotic skin which is supple and soft yet exceptionally tough. Each skin has it’s own individual pattern ensuring that every bag produced is one of a kind.

Exotic skins are naturally beautiful and manufactured with absolute regard for integrity of the skin. So where there may be natural birthmarks on the skin we request you to not disguise but celebrate the unique nature of each skim used. Regularly clean leather with a soft dry cloth. After manicures where your hands may be oily, we ask that you wear gloves to protect the leather. Keep leather goods away from heat, direct sun and do not store in too dry locations as this causes cracking. In the event it rains while you are carrying your bag, do all humanly possible to cover the bag to avoid spotting. Our bags are investment pieces which we are happy for you to send to us even 5 years later for a bit of love.
