Thread was born from a dream of combining quality and affordability and that has been our goal ever since. Our aim is to provide South Africa with genuine leather handbags, backpacks and satchels at the best prices available while using quality leather and components, ensuring that each bag is an investment in long-lasting usage.
The signature of every Thread bag is the distinctive artisan style and excellent craftsmanship behind each piece. Thread believes that local is lekker and handmade is best and so every piece we sell is lovingly created by hand in Cape Town.
These bags are all made from the finest game-skin leather. The leather is guaranteed to last as it is 3 times thicker that commercial leather. This is because the leather is not sanded down to get rid of the natural markings, however the markings on most bags are minimal, leaving the leather soft, smooth and supple yet incredibly hardy. The leather on which the markings are most obvious is the gemsbok skin (Regal Corra) and the markings both add to the authenticity and style of the leather while adding a richness to the colour.
The leather is aniline-dyed which means it is dyed all the way through and not simply sprayed like commercial leather. The aniline-dying process guarantees that the colour cannot scratch or chip off and only the top 5% of leather in the world can go through this process. All Thread bags come in three standard colours but limited edition colours are also often available for short periods of time. A Thread bag is a lifetime piece and cannot be matched in terms of value for money.
