A Letter from Taylor


Dear Friends and Clientele,

 

You may have noticed there’s been very little activity on the website and social media this past year. After much deliberation, I have sadly decided to place my store on hold. It’s been an incredible 8 years putting my creative mind to work and manufacturing products that I am truly proud of. I have learned so much about the leather industry from starting out with a CMT to building my own brand and factory. Unfortunately, my belief in keeping production local has made it difficult to keep costs in check. I wanted to make products that were truly South African, from the materials to the skilful hands at work, but with this dream I faced many obstacles and sadly it no longer makes sense. There is so much beauty and talent in this country so please continue to support local businesses who celebrate this gift. I don’t believe my journey as an artist is over, I have some exciting ideas in the works which I hope to share with you soon.

 

With that being said, we do have some handbags and accessories that are priced to go. Checkout has been disabled on the site, but please email taylor@taylorcovington.com if there is an item you are interested in. Alternatively, you are welcome to browse leftover stock in person, given you are Cape Town based.

 

Thank you for your love and support in this leather endeavour and big hugs to the friends and family who made an effort to share my passion with the world. It’s incredibly hard to say goodbye to this baby I’ve built.

 

Sincerely yours,

 

Taylor Covington
