Proudly South African
African Ostrix is Proudly South African in the sourcing of all their raw materials and the support of local BEE companies: #supportourfarmers
African Ostrix raw materials ONLY THE BEST QUALITY FARMED LEATHER HIDES are bought from local tanneries, mainly from Cape Karoo International in Oudtshoorn, who source their skins from local ostrich farmers.
African Ostrix fittings such as pullers and zips are made and sourced locally in Cape Town.
African Ostrix has helped to set up a few small factories in previously disadvantaged areas where people work from their home or hired premises. The owners and workers in these factories are mostly women and are some of the few remaining leather artisans in South Africa. African Ostrix keeps these factories in business and thus ensures job opportunities for local entrepreneurs.
African Ostrix values modern African individualistic interpretations of classic styles, with an uncompromising focus on top workmanship and quality.
A TEAM WITH A DREAM
For African Ostrix team members Chris Joubert and Noleen Franken, it all started with wine – for many years producing, marketing, and selling some of South Africa’s BEST red, white and sparkling wines at Spier Wine Estate! Back in the 1990s Chris ventured into ostrich farming and had a new dream to create locally manufactured high-end quality ostrich leather products. Being #agripreneurs at heart, Chris and Noleen’s new business idea boomed! Today, more than 20 years later, African Ostrix’s luxury niche range of leather handbags and accessories speaks for itself – with a double-decade record of successfully supplying the local wholesale and retail tourist market as well as export markets in the rest of Africa, the European Union and the United States. What started as a dream, became a passion – a South African heritage you can proudly share through owning an African Ostrix original. Browse our website and buy at www.africanostrichleather.co.za.
