The Bobby Yarn brand was born in 2015 when a love for authentic African design inspirations was translated into a range of affordable and practical bag designs. By blending modern and contemporary fabric designs with imagery of all things unique to Africa, Bobby Yarn products have managed to capture the essence of Africa.
We make bags from top selling commercial fabrics, as well as custom designed and printed fabrics meaning we are always producing bags out of design that no one would have ever thought possible. We use a balanced blend of cotton and canvas-based materials that are practical for all bag carrying applications.
Apart from a love of all African design, our hearts are rooted in African community upliftment and we have always had a strong ethos of giving back and re-sewing back into causes close to our hearts. One of these causes is the Smile Foundation of South Africa. The Smile Foundation is a South African non-governmental organisation with a comprehensive health care vision for children living with facial conditions. Smile Foundation together with the country’s Academic Hospitals and corporate donors, work together to put the smile back onto children’s faces with corrective facial reconstructive surgery and treatments.
