Yesterday I had the privilege of an exclusive viewing of Cape Cobra Leathercraft’s new Sping/Summer 2017 collection. I have always been a girl who dreams of owning a whole section in my closet dedicated to handbags from all over the world. Yesterday it felt like I was living that dream for only a few hours and oh my, it was a lovely dream. Cape Cobra blew me away with their unique styles, variety of skins and colours, and their attention to detail. After chatting a bit with Justine Schafer, the daughter of the owners of this family business as well as creative manager, I fell in love with the story behind the founding of Cape Cobra which started in 1972 read their story here.
Cape Cobra store is situated in Greenpoint and they have their product in the US as well. They offer a personal shopping experience that you do not often get within retail and this is what makes them so exclusive and unique. I’m dying to get my hands on a CCL bag.
