Founded in 2002 in Cape Town, Afrographic has grown from a small craft operation into an established and innovative manufacturer of leather key rings. The project, currently led by craftsperson Lindelwa Maqabuka and business strategist Vincent Urbain, began as a creative collaboration between graphic artists in the city and craftspeople in the informal settlements.


Great care and skill is applied in the hand making of each piece, with intricate stitching and finishing techniques used throughout. Every little animal is assembled by hand. This is where the magic happens.

Materials & Production

Our leather is sourced locally from environmentally friendly tanneries. Once it has been cut on a clicking press with custom designed die templates, it is handed over to the craft team.
