We are a couple with a passion for music, crafts, art and all things Earth. We were involved with the music industry for quite some time and trust us… it’s a hard business. Although we still love it we really wanted to start following our dreams and go full time into something we love… making beautiful things for folks that appreciate unique handmade stuff. In the beginning of August 2018 we formed a company called Purple Earth to make our handcrafted products.
It’s been a long journey and our paths led us to here. As a result, we are putting our hearts and souls into embracing our wacky and weird side… you can definitely find it in our work! Different and weird is the new cool ☺… We threw away the box a long time ago…
We upcycle and recycle anything into art to do our bit for the environment and make this a better world.
For our rubber products, we utilise up-cycled materials such as old truck, car and bicycle inner tubes. Eco and animal friendly, our ‘RE-TREADS’ handbags are one such product and each item is distinctive in the way that each merchandise piece is handmade from scratch and no two bags are identical which means that each piece of merchandise ends up as one-of-a-kind creation that sets each prospective owner apart from the current typical humdrum fashion-item stereotype.
We love what we do and we do it so well! We hope you love our products as much as we love making them.
Chantel and Aidan live with their cat, Merkie, in Gordon’s Bay, Cape Town South Africa.
