Named in honour of Lamia, 'The African Goddess Queen', the appeal of this design lies in its elegant and understated simplicity. The alluring construction paired with Okapi's signature springbok horn handle adds an eclectic touch. The adjustable handle also allows for the springbok horns to be removed in order to allow for a more paired-back look. Made with Okapi's own blesbok leather. All materials are sustainably sourced as a by-product of existing free-range farming practices.
Lamia is the powerful African Goddess queen. The intoxicatingly beautiful Lamia was known for her power to transform.
Working with select tanneries in the Karoo region, Okapi has pioneered the use of Blesbok leather. Blesbok leather is in keeping with our ethos as it is ethically and sustainably sourced as a by-product of the existing farming industry in South Africa. We work closely with our suppliers to ensure all processes are of the highest safety and quality, along with ethical production practices that respect both animal welfare and the environment. The natural markings that the animal incurs in the wild are included on the skins which are used. This adds to the uniqueness of each piece and is a deliberate inclusion in order to give a more organic and changeable quality.
