Missibaba is a luxury accessory design label established in 2005 by leather aficionado Chloe Townsend. Passionate about South Africa and supporting local industry, Chloe opened her Studio in the heart of Woodstock where she could surround herself with the best craftswomen in the country.
Combining technical skills learnt at the London College of Fashion with an inherent passion for uninhibited creativity, Chloe created the inimitable Missibaba brand. A playground for all things leather, Missibaba continues to experiment with texture and colour continuously pushing the boundaries of imagination.
About our leather
Most of our leather is sourced locally in Cape Town (A grade leather from South Africa and Namibia) with special bits ‘n pieces sourced in Argentina, India and England. We have some of our leather locally printed up with our designs as well as printing our own fabrics for linings. We love experimenting with different surface detail techniques for example hand painting on leather, hand- cut cutwork and hand drawn stitching details and patterns.
