All women have a handbag. Its existence is vital, seen by many as the mobile extension of the female body, a familiar house of our needs and wants, portable living spaces and our trusted friends.
Figo Leather Designs is an independent South African leather goods manufacturer based in Plettenberg Bay, supplying hand crafted leather goods to the retail and wholesale market.
Figo started in 2000 out of a love for the craft and passion for creativity. Since then it has continued to grow and added a wide range to the collection over the past 10 years.
We specialize in the manufacturing of beautifully fashioned handbags, wallets, purses, belts and accessories all individually crafted by hand, using the very best South African leather such as ostrich, crocodile, fish skin and bovine.
The collection features classic and flamboyant designs in the warm colors of the African Continent.
Figo products are truly hand crafted and our designers sketch the ideas, cut the patterns, source the leather from tanneries with good environmental practice and construct the products in our own studio. All our handbags are fitted with suede leather lining.
Within each product you can feel the attention required to create it – a transformation from design to creation.
Leather is alluring, durable and most attractive. At Figo our collection can be measured against all that leather is known for, sturdiness, strength, fashionable, worthy, valuable and long lasting.
