One day a mum and her daughter got chatting. They wanted to create quality custom bags in South Africa. Good quality, affordable custom bags. And so the idea behind Jum Designs was borne.
It is now a few months since that discussion. We (Amanda and Emma) are gradually defining and refining our business as we enjoy all that creative freedom has to offer.
We are creatives, both having studied and taught art and design. We love shopping for fabric. We love tea. We love designing bags. We love wine and dessert. We love art. Did we mention that we love dessert? We love having a good belly-aching laugh while we create and sew together.
And who doesn’t love shweshwe bags?!
Okay, to be sure, there are a few of you out there who aren’t shweshwe fabric fans. And that’s okay; we still love you. But most of you, like us, love the colours and prints of traditional African shweshwe fabric. So you will see a lot of shweshwe bags on our Facebook and Instagram accounts. But that’s definitely not all we do.
We also love how many of you love our custom bags!
If we have learnt anything over the past few months, it’s that you love custom handbags! Of course, we do offer a range of bags, from reversible totes to toddler backpacks. But there’s that little bit of something extra special when it comes to a woman’s handbag. In a funny way, it represents who you are.
Because that’s the whole point of custom bags
At Jum Designs we provide you with the opportunity to choose your preferred style of bag and the colours, prints, and fabrics that you prefer. That’s pretty awesome! (If we say so ourselves.)
Where do you start? Have a look at our product range and available fabrics… If you see something you like, let us know. Have something else in mind? Send us a message and we’ll do our utmost to create your ideal custom bag. Because that’s what we do.
We can’t wait to make your dream bag! xxx
