Maribu Leather Travel Bag


Our story began in a small studio attached to a warehouse in the Ga-Rankuwa township, North-West of Pretoria.

With only two sewing machines and 4 community members that needed a source of income, our brand was born. Our need for affordable Genuine Leather products and our passion for social entrepreneurship brought our vision, and products, to life

Our Genuine Leather bags are currently made in our youth empowerment project that operates with over 23 Full-Time artisans/crafters in our Waltloo (Pretoria) workshop.
