    Rarity Handbags began in Cape Town, South Africa over 15 years ago when a local farmer approached the founder, asking her to create something beautiful with culled hides that would normally be burned. Fifteen years later, Rarity has evolved into a successful Fair Trade Certified “slow fashion” business, and it still uses reclaimed indigenous leather to craft its beautiful bags.
