I bought the beach bag and makeup bag for my friend as a wedding thank you gift for helping us with our wedding. They arrived much soon than anticipated and they both were pretty - I wanted to keep them for myself. Fun gift to give.

handbags with heart...

wylder jane is a range of designer handbags, featuring vivid, bold fabric designs, contemporary styling, genuinely practical features and quality craftsmanship.

wylder jane designer bags are more than just fashion bags, however. they’re handbags with heart – designed and crafted in South Africa, from ethically produced South African cotton, woven by local textile workers.

wylder jane is a collective consisting of designing women, catherine oliver and heather tarr. tired of buying cheap, mass-produced bags of dubious quality, catherine and heather decided to take the bull by the horns and create their own distinctive range of quality fashion bags.
between them, catherine and heather manage all aspects of wylder jane’s affairs.
catherine is the creative force behind wylder jane and heather is wylder jane’s sales and marketing guru.

to help them bring their handiwork to life, catherine and heather enlist the help of family-run co-operatives and local African labor during certain production processes.
