IN THE BAG ‘The Sgt. Pepper is the most iconic Missibaba bag. For our 10-year celebration, we decided to relook some of our past favourites and create a luxurious collection of all the beautiful styles we’ve made.’ – Lizel Strydom AN OLD FAVOURITE The Sgt. Pepper bag from the 2011 Beatles-inspired range is the first design to be relaunched as part of their new Iconic Collection.
A LABOUR OF LOVE Once designed, the patterns for the bag are created and the panels cut by hand. Then Chloe and Lizel create the surface details themselves before the straps, rivets and piping are attached, also by hand.
MIXED MATERIALS In this bag, leather from a tannery in Pietermartizburg is combined with exotic Argentinian leather. MEET SGT. PEPPER Each bag takes six to eight hours to make and no two bags are the same since the strips are woven by hand from buttery soft leather before they are stitched together.
