House of Cinnamon is a proudly Afro-European accessory brand that offers a limited range of luxury handcrafted shoes and one-of-a-kind leather bags, as well as other unique, high quality accessories in partnership with local South African micro-industries.
Expert craftsmen who have been working with leather since 1988 manufacture the select House of Cinnamon range of hand bags in a factory that supports 30 local artisans.
The distinctive House of Cinnamon coats and blazers are designed and tailored by two Cape Town-based sisters determined to employ their skills and keep their family-run textile business alive.
“South Africa boasts a huge diversity of local talent and offers a wide range of original, beautiful, top-end pieces that can more than hold their own against competition from elsewhere. We should all be supporting local manufacturers and craftspeople and try to avoid buying imported items,” says Frances Edwards ( CEO & Creative Director)
