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.
This is the original 'traditional wallet' that I began making a few years ago. It has evolved quite a lot since then. It is larger, and features a non-rust silver stud closure on the card and coin slots. This forms one half of the open wallet. The other half has a slot for notes. All braids have been pre-shrunk before being stitched into place, and the wallet is lined with Da Gama (three cats) Shweswhe. This is also a new feature. These fabric wallets are an alternative to leather, are bright and colourful and fun to use AND are unique. No two are the same.

I do not use 'scrap' fabrics to make these wallets. I buy one meter of each design. This means that I have a high turnover of fabrics, and hence my interest is always stimulated. I love the 'stitching' of the wallets and each wallet is made with care and attention to detail. Each wallet is thus 100% guaranteed.

Each wallet weighs approx 50g. Each size varies slightly (no batch cutting, no 'mass' production) at approx 22cm X 11cm.
