How it's made

Labour Welfare Pluss

​The Bush Princess studio is located in Nairobi, where they support their local community and provide financial help to workers, including assistance to send their workers’ children to better schools. All Bush Princess materials are locally sourced, supporting Kenyan livelihoods in the making of each piece. The leather comes from Kenyan tribes who take great care of their cattle and graze them in the open African plains. The brass work is made from recycled metal by artisans from Kibera in Nairobi – Africa’s largest slum. The exquisite beadwork is created by a group of Maasai women. Each piece is handcrafted and exclusive in its creation.

​As an ethical fashion brand, bush princess is committed to supporting local communities and to sourcing sustainable products throughout our design and production process.

Animal Welfare

All of the leather used for production comes from Kenya. The hides come from a variety of Kenyan tribes, who graze their animals in the vast African plains and produce leather of the highest quality. Each hide carries it’s own unique pattern and markings, making each piece exclusive.

Low Toxic

The leather of this product is not vegetable tanned, Chrome is used. This is for now a choice Bush Princess have done, when choosing a local production and making sure that the quality is the highest, instead of sending of leather to other parts of the world for a satisfying vegetable tanned production. The colouring process still also demands use of chemicals to make the quality high, but this is also done with care and Bush Princess make sure that use is kept to a minimum and that no chemicals are left behind along the way.

Recycled

Most of the brass items used on these bags are made by artisans from the Kibera informal settlement in Nairobi and are made from recycled metal.

Supporting Traditional Skills and Education

Bush princess features the creativity and craftsmanship of Kenyan artisans in all aspects of its design, and also supporting different education initiatives in doing so.

Low Carbon Footprint

All production and sourcing is done in Africa, and as locally as possible.

Care

  • If suede, brush it with a soft suede brush every 3 to 4 months to remove dirt and renew the suede’s nap. A brush like this is available at most shoe repair shops or supermarkets.

  • Do not get water, food or oily substances on your bag!  If it should get wet, your only option is to let it dry naturally.  If you have an oil or grease spot on a suede bag, you can try to apply talcum powder liberally to the affected area.  Allow it to set for 24 hours and then softly brush it away.​

  • To lessen the appearance of dimples and dents, rub the back of the area with your hand (from the inside of the bag).  This will help to release the dent/dimple.

  • When not in use, be sure to store your handbag in the bush princess dustbag.
