Story


With our heads in the city, and our hearts in the bush, Adam and Matt have created ‘Bowes Brothers’ a range that will contribute sustainable funds for trusted partners.

From helping to protect wildlife and empowering local communities, we want to be actively making a difference.

It is our way of paying it forward, responding to the wholesale poaching and wildlife crime devastating Africa.

 

Our Range

Each piece in our range is handmade with heart. With huge focus on detail and quality, the range always features threatened animals. We also love indigenous wood, linen, gold and silver.

We donate a percentage of our profit to Tusk and HESC (via Investec Rhino Lifeline).

All prices include VAT but exclude delivery. Shipping within South Africa is free on all orders of R600 or more.
