About Us

VASH was founded by Vash Uys, with the goal of introducing the rest of the world to the stunning leather craftsmanship and unique materials used in traditional African craft, while creating and sustaining artisan jobs.

Vash Uys

"Our designs maintain the fabulous spirit of Africa. Each bag is assembled from sustainable resources using techniques perfected over generations. Springbok, bovine and metallic splatters bring a distinctive edge to each individual piece."

VASH are crafted from genuine leather with designs that pass the test of time. Vash’s own personal easy-going style mirrors her design ethos - favouring the functional and fuss-free with a strong emphasis on beautiful texture.

VASH is handmade in our workshop in South Africa with materials sourced in Cape Town and Kwazulu Natal South Africa, Namibia and Swaziland. A small group of woman and men assemble our creations each day by hand.

An overwhelming reception to our signature Jem Clutch led Vash to build on the single offering into a full collection of unique, handcrafted, beautiful handbags.

Our creations are available at selected boutiques worldwide.
