We’re excited to have partnered with Rock a Baby (South Africa’s most beautiful baby fair) to meet some super creative people who are making beautiful products for kids, babes and mama. These vendors will be at the fair on 27 September (diarise it now).
First up is Kelly from Jeankelly . Every component in the Jean Kelly range is sourced and manufactured in South Africa. They use only the highest quality leathers. All products are made in local factories or by small teams of woman from communities who take great pride in the beautiful items they produce.
Tell us a bit about your products.
The Jeankelly range consists of locally made leather products. We make handbags (nappy bags), ballet pumps and sandals. Our range is designed and manufactured in Cape Town, made from only the best quality leathers and materials. We aim to produce trendy yet classic footwear and handbags which last.
What inspired your business?
I have always had a love for natural products and design, thanks to my mom who started her own all-leather baby shoe company. I’ve been able to draw on her experience when starting my own range, which has proven invaluable. The insights I’ve received have given me a real head start.
How does your business fit your lifestyle?
Growing up in a family business producing leather baby goods, it is an intrinsic part of me to try create beautiful products for babies and mums. I am a very family oriented person and the families (especially new parents) that I meet through Jeankelly excite me and that’s what drives my passion for the business.
What is your favourite product and why?
My favourite product is the genuine leather Jeankelly caramel shopper, with its classic, stylish design, this unique bag is perfect for every day or work use for many years to come. It is definitely a worth while investment.
