The meaning of the Thandana symbol derives from the ancient Zulu rock art paintings . Thandana is committed to its South African heritage and so we felt it fitting to make use of a symbol that derived from Zulu culture.

It is a symbol for the word “&” which denotes “addition”…..“to add to” The philosophy of the Thandana Brand is “to provide the gift of authentic and enduring leather bags, hand made in South Africa”.

The meaning of Thandana is “to love one another”. Both the meaning of the brand together with the philosophy behind every brand initiative is with the intention to “add”, to “grow”, to “love”.


The addition symbol is a representation of all that Thandana seeks to add through the bags that it creates, “with love”.

THANDANA- “To love one another”
