FSP proudly presents a collection of natural springbok leather handbags to mark two decades of making luxury handbags.
Since it was Springbok that initially inspired the birth of the FSP brand it seems fitting to revisit our roots to celebrate 20 years in true FSP style.
Celebrate with us as we pay homage to our national animal - The Springbok
The Majorelle Collection attests to my love affair with the richness and diversity of the Morrocon culture.
On a recent trip I visited the beautiful Jardin Majorelle in Marrakech.
The walls are painted in a vivid colour known as 'Majorelle Blue' and the garden is a living work of art.
There are amazing exotic plants from every corner of the world and calm shady corners overlooking ponds covered in blue and green mosaics.
Such a source of inspiration for our 2017 Spring/Summer Collection.

We are sensing a collective longing for a relaxed style and fashion is always an expression of the spirit of the times. There is a movement towards pragmatism, comfort and restraint. With this in mind we have created a Collection of simple unlined silhouettes in our sublime suede-like leathers leaving the edges raw to give them an edgy appeal. Nothing fussy but oh so stylish!
Please note that these styles are all unlined, an added leather pocket is included on the inside.

SPRINGBOK HIDE HANDBAGS
Founded in 1998, FSP has 20 years of experience in Springbok hair-on design.The versatile Springbok skin (hide) has been engineered into much desired fashion springbok handbags, gorgeous springbok pillows and other homeware items that add a touch of ethnic glamour to any living room. Our inspiration comes from our appreciation of nature and our incredibly diverse “rainbow nation”. The FSP Springbok Postman style was the first innovative design that we launched. The colouring of the Springbok skin is mostly a light tan with a ‘mohawk” white pronk and choc stripes on the belly area. This makes for an incredibly beautiful Springbok handbag especially if the “mohawk” is accentuated. The first FSP Springbok export order was sent to the Netherlands. This started our journey of exporting our Springbok handbags to several countries overseas.
Part of our selection process includes the hand sorting of each Springbok skin. We always seek to select the finest Springbok skins (hides) with the least amount of defects for our Springbok Collections within both our apparel and homeware. We work only with verified Springbok skin suppliers. The Springbok skins used in the manufacturing process are obtained through government approved herd reduction programs. Springbok are medium-sized antelope that live in south and south-western Africa and inhabit dry inland areas including grasslands, shrub lands and deserts. They are prevalent in game parks and commonly are raised on game farms in the Eastern Cape and Namibia. Springbok meat is highly prized and a sort after export item. The springbok skins we use are therefore a bi product and would normally have been tanned for industrial glove leather as it is so fine and thin. By purchasing a Springbok product manufactured in our factory you can become part of our world by ensuring the development and survival of our beautiful Springbok.
The Springbok Postman
Did you know we manufacture our Zebra handbags from genuine Burchell's Zebra skins. These skins are legally sourced and carefully selected for quality and grading. These animals are not endangered in anyway and thrive in many game farms in South Africa.
