helgé original hand made fabric wallets and bags

Notice from helgé original hand made fabric wallets and bags: This is a very late notice indeed. My most sincere apologies but I have not been at Shongweni Farmer's Market since January. This still remains my most favourite KZN market, but my life has taken a different turn and I had to follow with that. I now only make bags and wallets to order. If you are interested please don't hesitate to contact me via this site. A selection of my work, including some shweshwe skirts and two men's shirts, is available at Mrs. Pinkerton's at the Mushroom Farm, Hillcrest during normal working hours including Sundays. Once again, my humblest apologies for this late notification. Thank you so much for your ongoing support for my produclts.

Each wallet has a slot for notes, cards (the slot fits about 10 cards comfortably), and coins.
