Oya is a luxurious classic for every occasion. Named after the magical Warrior Goddess, this timeless wardrobe staple is designed to become more beautiful with age. Made with Okapi’s own hardwearing Blesbok leather which over time will develop its own patina. The Oya is a favourite among women on the go as it packs for travel and adds instant chic to any outfit. **Please note the Springbok horn is sold separately.**Okapi was created with a view to being one of Africa’s first true luxury brands. It was founded by South African painter Hanneli Rupert in 2008. She wanted to create a locally produced range of products that would combine exceptional quality and craftsmanship with an international yet uniquely African look and feel. Okapi is named after the elusive antelope otherwise know as the “African Unicorn.
The brand takes influence from an Art Nouveau aesthetic, magic, mysticism and reverence to nature. This design code comes to life in the products which aim to be understated and timeless with form following function, whilst also unique and exotic with details such as the Springbok horns to make them stand out.
