The Trip range of handbags and accessories includes a stylish blend of fabrics and leathers, and the fabric designs tend to have a retro feel, while styles are simple, classic and functional. The African print clothing accommodates a variety of sizes and its prints are bold. All products are hand-made, with great care, in Cape Town itself. The Trip brand can be recognised by its individual style, quality and functionality. The ranges are constantly evolving: fabrics keep changing while the more classic shapes may remain the same. Trip handbags, made from fabrics, leather and canvas, are aimed at those who enjoy expressing individuality and who seel exclusivity. All the products at Trip have a distinctly South African flavour, with a touch of nostalgia. They are produced locally mostly by women, to export quality standards. Susan Didcott, owner and designer, feels passionately about keeping local skills alive, and uses local materials wherever possible.
