Our Story

Leefi was inspired by family and founded in 2015. The name is derived from the owner Odette whose parents call her Lefie (Afrikaans) which means life. She is now joined by her sister Sulandè and together they create eco-friendly cork handbags and accessories.

“We aspire to produce specialized South African designer goods and create a passion for local craftsmanship.”

“It’s important to us to create local job opportunities and help each other in our represented fields. As with family, we need each other and support each other. We LOVE local!”
