We offer high quality, high fashion, luxury handbags and resort accessories, which are locally and proudly made in the heart of Cape Town, South Africa. Innovation is key to us and both local and international trends provide the inspiration to create the perfect pieces for women to feel glamorous when travelling and out and about.

ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY SOURCING

At Nicole Martine we only source the highest quality local leathers that are government certified. We use a variety of leathers from bovine and exotics to create our unique resort accessories. The ostrich and other exotic leathers are sourced from Klein Karoo International; only farm-reared ostriches are used and the quality control is of the highest order and consistent throughout the process of preparing the skins. Klein Karoo International has been certified as an ISO 14001 (environmental management system) company since September 2006. The South African Bureau of Standards (SABS) performs external audits every year. The SA Department of Environmental Affairs (DEA) has also recently audited Klein Karoo International in terms of environmental legislation. Nicole Martine are extremely conscious of environmental sustainability and will continue to work closely with our suppliers to make sure Global standards are adhered to.
