Hot Pink Frog Designs
Marie Murphy founded this proudly South African business in 2012 and the brand embodies her love of colour and style.
The finest quality genuine leather and hardware is sourced from local suppliers to create our bags.
All of our bags are made entirely by hand in our studio in Hout Bay. Marie designs the patterns for each bag and the leather is cut by hand with a knife. All of the stitching is done by hand using two harness needles and waxed thread.
Why hand-stitching? Each item is sewn with a saddle stitch.
This creates a superior finish as the thread passes through each hole twice, doubling the strength of the stitches.
With machine-sewn lockstitch, if one stitch breaks all of the stitches can unravel.
It can take up to four times longer to produce a hand-stitched bag but the final product is more durable than a machine-sewn bag.
Our bags are very reasonably priced and they appeal to all ages. Our designs are simple, funky, and retro.
Our products make superb gifts and it is also possible to purchase a Gift Voucher on our website.
Products can be ordered online at hotpinkfrogdesigns.com and delivered to your door by courier.
