About the brand: From the carefully woven grasses to the beautiful finishing on each bag, Khokho is an authentic expression of fine craftmanship and specialised design. A cross-cultural and transcontinental passion for artisan work unites the three founders of Khokho. With ethical practice at the heart of the business, the bags are handwoven by a local women’s cooperative and carefully handcrafted with fine leather details in the Khokho studio, all fully produced in Eswatini, Africa. Khokho - the siSwati word for great-grandmother - honours the value and the wisdom passed down through generations of women.
APE says: A brand committed to supporting local artisans to preserve incredible, traditional craft.
