We are overwhelmed with Modern & Tribal CC’s potential in design, marketing and their highest quality of products. They bring out the African style with their combination of games skins, leather and material fabrics. They are thinking “OUT OF THE BOX”. I would highly recommend their workmanship, outstanding products and passion for designing. We are looking forward to working with them in the future.

Excellent quality ostrich skin handbags at the best value for money in Cape Town. Great service too, Deon and his staff went to great lengths to make my bag in my choice of colour in a short turnaround time! Highly recommended!
