We started out using more fabric covering a whole lot of leather but soon realized people wanted more leather than fabric as they associated fabric with less expensive bags.
So we set out to look for interesting and edgy fabric to use just a bit of it to put that nice twist on our bags. Now that’s how to spot most Joela bags... with an accent of fabric. Some of our bags are also made from printed animal skins as we don’t believe in using exotic leathers from endangered species.
Foot Farm is an initiative where we produce school shoes or party shoes for less privileged Children especially those in State Schools and Orphanages. This is funded by getting donors to sponsor a child at the cost price of making the shoes.
What People Say
Being a proud owner of five Joela bags,
I can confidently state that these are bags with a difference! There is never a time I carry a Joela bag that I don’t get compliments. And most importantly, they are long-lasting bags. I have one that’s about 5 yrs and I’m still receiving compliments on it. Joela bags are awesome!
