Set against the backdrop of an art exhibition, MASCH’s Saffiano Collection was the perfect complement and finishing touch to the art itself.

“Timeless and elegant leather bags, handcrafted through a slow production process to ensure the finest quality product.” – Madri Scherman

Madri Sherman at Masch Launch

Madri Scherman, 23, hosted the launch of her Saffiano Collection on the 16th of August. Guests arrived to a rolled out red carpet (making everyone feel like celebs) and the night was full of entertainment (violinist and a Stellenbosch Men’s Residence choir), sparkling wine, hors d’oeuvres (#fancy) and of course – the most fabulous leather goods.

Leather products ranging from leather bow ties to weekend bags and clutches were on display (and to buy). The handbags were given names to make the item even more unique.


The colour palette of the range is mostly earthy tones (tan, cream, brown, black, light greys, blush, aubergine and off-white) with the addition of a few brighter tones to contrast the neutral palette.


The lining is of a printed linen material – giving the handbags a luxurious and elite finish.

The prices are what one can expect from genuine leather and the price one has to pay for true craftsmanship. The clutches are exquisitely made and the hand-stitching is perfectly aligned.

These simple, yet elegant handbags are a staple for each closet. An “I’ll save for it, but I have to have it” item. An “I can grow old with this bag.” There is something for everyone in this Saffiano colletion – his and hers; fancy and informal; work and social and we must say: this would be an extraordinary gift! *hint hint


It is extremely exciting to see such a young gal behind an incredible up-and-coming brand. We cannot wait to see what the future holds for this young designer – and entrepreneur. Congratulations on an AMAZING launch. You are such a #bossbabe! You truly make leather goods which are TrendE.
