Tell us a little bit about your business
Storytellers was born from a vision we had as photographers for our photography business.
We wanted a product that has it’s own identity, is stylish, functional and has great quality, but most of all focuses on enhancing the whole photography experience.
Locally sourced genuine leather is used to craft these amazing products, making Storytellers a proudly South African product, which speaks to the modern photographers lifestyle and business.
Did anything in particular make you choose this field:
Before we started with storytellers we actively searching for good quality leather bags in South africa to purchase for our photography gear, to our dismay, we found nothing, only international brand that were quite expensive for the South African market and over priced to import.
So that is when we started looking at local leather and how we can create a local brand that has style quality and that tells a story.
