The Accessorie’s Accessory: Nato/Zulu Watch Straps

I’ve always thought that some pieces, particularly Time Pieces, should not be altered in any way or else they lose their charm or their sophistication….. well, I WAS WRONG!!!! Check these NATO/ZULU watch straps, I now strongly feel that every watch owner needs to have a pair of interchangable straps. Unfortunately these are not available in South African stores but im sure for us seeking to bring a whole lot of life to our old pieces, we will make a way to get strapped!!

 

REDOKER

We at Y’SLF&Co. love leather goods purely because of their durability and the way they age beautifully, plus they last forever!!

Now when it comes to backpacks, we, in South Africa have always been starved of good quality stylish leather backpacks, we’ve always just drooled over them in European magz and style pics doing the rounds, now thats where REDOKER comes in, I’ve had the opportunity to meet one of the founders of this company at a pop-up store in Sandton City and on display was some of the most beautiful handcrafted leather bags I have ever seen in S.A. and the price was just right as well! S/O to REDOKER for seeing the need and providing the goods!!! yeah, S/O to Chapel Clothing as well, they also produce quality backpacks in the dopest colour ways ever!!!

To order yourself a REDOKER piece just pop over to their online store and I promise you will not be disappointed!

Yet another African on the Rise!!!
