The vision behind Okapi is to produce luxurious, artisanal handbags and accessories completely handmade in South Africa from locally sourced materials. Founded in 2008 by South African painter, Hanneli Rupert, Okapi combines quality and craftsmanship with an international yet uniquely African look. Named after the antelope, Okapi is unique and exotic with eye catching details such as the Springbok horns. In addition to providing us with great armcandy, Rupert aims to create positive change by developing valuable skills and creating sustainable jobs on the continent, music to our ears! Below are some of the brand’s armcandy that we fell in love with.
