In the mountain town of Clarens (bordering the Golden Gate Highlands National Park), husband and wife team, Terrick and Charlene started Chartermade. They have one aim: to create quality handmade items packed with functionality, craftsmanship and exclusivity. ‘Our ambition is to design functional, classic products that will never go out of style.’ While their range is extensive (think iPad portfolios, satchels, totes and travel bags), we couldn’t resist the Gentleman’s Travel Cases. As with all Chartermade products, this item is made from full grain vegetable tanned leather and is cut and stitched by hand with waxed thread. Once constructed, the cases are not treated with chemicals or altered in any way, rather, they are left in their natural form, ensuring each piece has its own unique quality. The Gentleman’s Travel Case, measuring 23cm x 11,5cm x 11,5cm will fit and protect all your toiletries while you’re on the go. As seen in the gallery above, the case is available in three styles and shades. Every Chartermade product comes with a whopping 25-year guarantee. We think that says it all. Available via, the Gentleman’s Traveller retails between R879 and R925 depending on the style. For more information about Chartermade, email or visit
