Business Pouches (Pty) Ltd, referred to as Bouches South Africa, is a startup founded by 25-year-old Zanele Mabaso, a female entrepreneur based in Cape Town. 

Bouches is known for their handcrafted genuine leather accessories, creatively customized and tailored by young local women ages 20-25. Bouches practices ethical leather processing and manufacturing practices by using leftover leather from other industries as well as a water-safe and chemical-free tanning solution in order to practice sustainability and environmental consciousness.

Bouches South Africa contributes towards the local community by supporting the education of its young female artisans. Mabaso hopes to build a business that has social impact and gives back to communities in the long-term.

Currently, all of Bouches' high-quality leather products are available by appointment only. Please reach out to to learn more.
