About Us


Koei is the Afrikaans word for cow. We are a proudly South African brand and source the majority of our raw material locally.

All Koei designs are lovingly handmade in-house and are both beautiful and practical and will stand the test of time. There’s just something about a product that distinguishes itself from the assembly line products when it is hand crafted.

Full grain leather wears in with use and acquires a beautiful patina and character over time.

Quality takes time to produce and when you are on a schedule and a target, its compromise is inevitable. That’s why our cowhide leather bags, pouches, and other accessories are painstakingly crafted by hand, so that we can always take pride in our products and give our customers exactly what they deserve – the best.

We want you to have the pleasure of experiencing a handmade bag or accessory that is crafted with care. So, why wait, check our products and reward yourself with some genuine and truly, a work of art. They are beautiful to look at and lovely to hold.
