Rarity Handbags

Rarity Handbags opened one of the first design studios in the trend-setting Woodstock district of Cape Town. The company is run by a very ethical entrepreneur, Jaqueline Burge.

Rarity, as the name suggests, brings unique handmade handbags for women who want to make a fashion statement. And this, while combining the local, South African design and the exotic raw materials that South Africa has to offer such as ostrich feathers, leather and springbok.

“Perfect imperfection” is the motto of Rarity Handbags. The company sees the imperfection of their natural resources such as leather, skins and feathers both as a reality of nature and as a quality. For Jaqueline Burge and her team it is all about accepting this imperfection and about perfecting in the finish.
