Handmade by Fundi

Handmade by FUNDI is an up and coming designer, we found his work in a trendy market place in Johannesburg South Africa. He uses only recycled leathers and traditional African cotton fabric when crafting his hand made handbags, meaning you will never get the exact same handbag. 

Fundi and his co-workers hand stich each bag. He is a true artisan and loves using the recycled material to create one off style pieces.

Born in Zimbabwe Fundi learnt to sew from his mother and father. Fundi starting off making shoes from recycled tyres to support himself, while walking around selling the shoes he needed a strong bag to hold them. From then he started making just plain leather bags. While in Mozambique Fundi fell in love with “Capulana”, a style of African print fabric and started blending the fabric into his leather bags.

Modern Tradition is proud to showcase Handmade by Fundi’s selection of bags and we just know you will love them as much as we do!

No two of Fundi’s handbags are the same, each has their own story.  Each piece is unique as you.
