VERSE exists as a homage-to and celebration-of the carefully handmade. Hand stitched leather pieces are made with the feminine energy in mind, and with love given to the concepts of functionality and timelessness.

Shelley Lee, creative director and founder, started this journey in 2018 and has since grown the production team to include Chiweshe Clever and Babra Sibanda. Creating the pieces in-house means quality is maintained, and artisinal jobs are created; both core founding principles of the brand.

A forever-passion for poetry, film, fynbos and fashion meets a life-long commitment to artisanship, design and community upliftment creating products that will last: a verse to join you in the story of your life.
