Leefi is a socially responsible accessories line for both men and women that is handcrafted in Cape Town to celebrate the vibrancy, colour and diversity of South Africa. The name Leefi means Life and was created by two sisters, Odette and Sulandé.
Inspired by life, a passion for kindness, humanity and animals, with the core part of what makes life spectacular – family – Odette and Sulandé created Leefi in 2015 to celebrate nature with every stitch.
The two sisters wanted to make a difference within the Cape Flats community – creating jobs, generating a steady income and empowering women by partnering with a dedicated team of 8 ladies and 1 man.
With each individual adding their own story to each Leefi creation, from harvesting the cork on 9-year old matured Cork Oaks, to cutting their synthetic Baobab leather and hand stitching the pieces together, each piece redeems its own unique beauty and carries through the true meaning of community, quality of life and family.
