From South Africa to Saint Louis: Chameleon Girl Clutch

I’m so glad that I have the opportunity to showcase designers and creators from across the globe. Technology has made the world a smaller, more connected place. I met Jill Jodrey, owner and creator of South African-based Chameleon Girl bags, online and probably because of a shared love of African-inspired fashion. I’m so happy our worlds converged. Chameleon Girl specializes in making leather bags with an African twist. Each bag is carefully crafted by hand in the Western Cape of South Africa and are available worldwide via the Chameleon Girl Etsy shop.

I love the simplicity and versatility of a foldover clutch. This handbag style really showcases the African textiles used to create the bag. Chameleon Girl, by the way, uses the finest materials from all over Africa. The Bogolanfini mud cloth, made primarily by the Bamana/Bambara women in Mali, is so striking, especially when paired with the luxe grey leather on this clutch. This clutch was made to be a collection piece. It’s the kind of bag you keep forever.

If you find a Chameleon Girl bag that you love, be sure to use the code EOS15OFF to get 15% off your order (code is valid until the end of May). I was so thrilled when my Chameleon Girl clutch arrived only 9 days after leaving South Africa. Just 9 days!
