The leather is so soft and the colour is just perfect! It’s the perfect cross body bag, big enough to hold a small wallet, phone and lip-gloss!”

Quality leather handbags and accessories
Like anything, leather ages over time, adding to its character, its softness and durability. We believe that any leather item only gets better with age, its personality stems from the unique hide and pattern it was designed from.
Quality over quantity
Made to last
Black Swan sources only the best quality hides locally and internationally, which gets used to produce our pieces. Each hide is ethically sourced and hygienically tanned. Each colour and texture is personally chosen for a specific item, thus no item will be exactly the same.
Leather is like a painting, with varying textures, markings, shades and natural patterns. It is unique in its own beauty. Black Swan draws on this beauty, to reflect in each piece that we produce.
A little bit about Black Swan
As little girls, we grow up dreaming of being successful and independent. We look for beauty, for passion. In my case, it was a love of handbags, leather, and design. Black Swan is my interpretation of classic, practical, unique and stylish beauty. The beauty of Black Swan handbags.

Caring for your Black Swan leather item
Leather is a very durable material, and requires minimal maintenance. It has varying textures and patterns, thus making each piece unique in its shade and natural markings. To keep the leather in good condition for life, we have some care instructions below:
Applying a natural leather moisturiser every few months, will preserve your colour and leather.
To keep your leather clean, you can brush your leather item down with a slightly damp cloth or a soft fabric. For stubborn marks, use a leather cleaner as directed and follow with a leather conditioner.
Liquid can stain leather if not wiped away immediately. Blot, do not rub excess liquid with a clean, dry cloth. Do not use any soaps or cleansers.
Try to avoid getting your leather very wet and do not store in direct sunlight.
Leather needs to breathe, thus do not store your item in plastic containers. Store your leather item in a cool, dry place, or in a soft cloth bag.
Do not allow cosmetics, hand creams or perfumes to come into contact with your leather item. Also, do not administer any chemical treatments to your leather item.
It is important to note that any genuine leather item will age with time. it will change colour and get a character of its own, which is part of leather's beauty. Taken care of correctly, your item will last you a life time.
