Amongst the beauties that our Wanderland x Aureum Oceanum collection offers, our round velvet pouch is most definitely a rare gem.
Make a statement flaunting it as an evening clutch, pair it with a matching Wanderland velvet sling bag as a ‘bag within a bag’, or use it as a handy makeup or coin purse. And all this while knowing that your little velvet pouch is a quality handmade South African product that promotes and supports local artists and craftsmen.
Wanderland Collective has collaborated with local South African designer Aureum to create an exclusive hand-drawn ocean inspired design, that has been transformed into this special little purse. True to our proudly South African brand identity, these quality velvet zip bags are hand made locally in Johannesburg paying the closest attention to detail from start to finish. We love that each piece is beautifully hand crafted, and that every product is unique. To add to this handcrafted philosophy and promote proudly South African work and ethics we have also employed an incredibly skilled artisan Kimberley Sithole, to meticulously hand embroider each individual velvet print before it is made up. This labour intensive process adds incredible texture as the coral and shells begin to grow off the surface in a cacophony of knots and stitches. Each pouch is also finished with a matching locally handmade silky tassel that brings a dash of extra glam.
