Now all fashionistas can have a go at designing their own stylish handbag, with our specially crafted Design-a-Bag events.
Design-a-Bag allows you to have a few hours of creative fun with each participant designing and assembling their very own handbag, under the guidance of African Queen MD Nicola Leitch and her beaders. Participants receives a pack of pictures, pens, leathers, linings and beads – all they need to bring to the party is a bit of imagination.
Our designers are on hand to assist and our beaders are available to help with colour choices and to teach the art of beading our signature ‘circle of life’ discs.
We host the Design-a-Bag parties at African Queen house in Bryanston, Johannesburg or at an address of your choosing - whilst sipping a glass of wine, champagne or a cup of tea. High teas, lunches and other refreshments are available by prior request.
Your personally designed handbag will be completed by African Queen and delivered to your door within three weeks.
Design-a-Bag is perfect for special occasion birthday parties (think 40th, 50th or even 60th birthdays), pamper parties, corporate client events, special “book club” evenings or just a fun night few hours with your girlfriends.
Help us to help others
Design-a-Bag supports African Queen’s vision of a “hand-up not a hand out” and a percentage of our profits help support the New Life Community Centres feeding scheme through a profit percentage donation and training and job creation projects in Cosmo City, Alexandra and Diepsloot. The feeding scheme currently provides over 10 000 meals monthly to needy children, some of which are from child-headed households. African Queen also makes and sells the Rhino Force project beaded bracelet to help raise funds for Rhino anti-poaching units.
