About The Brand

2017 marks a change in direction for Bloss & Co. There are 3 directions we are taking:

 

Affordable luxury:


Creating a range of more affordable handbags and purses that allows women to spoil themselves more often than not. This will mean that our bags shift down a gear from 100% leather to looking at alternative materials such as faux leather and canvas and cotton. All of our bags will include our signature linings: The monkey & tulip and leopard & peony designs created for us especially by talented artist Kelly Higgs: https://www.facebook.com/KellyHiggsBotanicalArtist/

 

 

Local designs & collabs:

Of course we want to support South African local design and we’re currently in the process of having our gorgeous Kelly Higgs monkey and leopard make up bags made up in Johannesburg. We are also looking at printing canvas hemp bags with a Safari twist, keep your eyes peeled for these designs in May. #blosslocal. 

We are also in talks to collaborate with extremely talented South African & Zimbabwean Artists.

 

Beyond handbags:

We are looking to expand our Bloss & Co range to include clothing, loungewear and accessories such as scarves, jewellery rolls and hair accessories.
