 Handmade African Luxury From VALOYI

THE KHAYA WAISTBAG – SCATTERBRAIN.

banner-970x90f

An ethically conscious affordable luxury accessories brand for the modern international woman and man, VALOYI brings refined contemporary design to the vibrant cultural cloths of Africa.

Handmade in Cape Town, South Africa, the brand blends thoughtfully curated traditional textiles with modern handbags silhouettes to create one of a kind pieces.

Harmonie Mbunga, founder of VALOYI, said: “I founded VALOYI as an homage to traditional African craftsmanship. I want to do my part in the redefining of the African narrative, my part in raising our heritage crafts and culture to a place of esteem, and (further) cementing its relevancy onto this world. Why? Because its history matters. Our history matters.

“By giving traditional craftsmanship a new medium for their stories to be retold, new life is immediately breathed into them, bestowing upon them a deserving dignity and honour to live on forever. Our heritage belongs on the world stage, requires a seat at the table, and any false narrative of it’s inferiority must no longer exist.”
