Welcome to Thlokomelo Designs
Thlokomelo Designs is an up market leather product targeting the trendy but African oriented clientele. We represent quality, versatility, durability, and uniqueness, with individually handcrafted products. Our product lines enjoy a careful blend of locally sourced leather and other materials with current fashion trends, to result in products that reflect the rich African culture at its best. Specialized techniques are applied in the production process to combine the use of leather together with locally crafted beads, bones, horns, and shells and bring out that "Woo Africa" factor. The wide range of products ensures that everyone is catered for, for all occasions.
The company was started and registered in 2012. The idea was provoked by Kenya Vision 2030 which indicates the need to add value to hides and skins. The 2013 study on factors affecting value addition in the leather industry in Kenya carried out by the founder of Thlokomelo Designs sealed the idea of investing in leather products development to create employment.
