Where it all began.

Sleek, authentic and affordable leather goods, locally sourced and produced.
Good design is honest. Good design is simple.

Grethe Maritz


Grethe first got the idea for the business at the end of 2016. She realised the popularity of leather goods, especially among students and young people, but also that most brands are exclusive and very expensive.

She began thinking of creating a brand with well designed, sleek products that give the same idea of exclusivity, but being a lot more accessible and affordable.

And that’s how Cool Bananas came about; with you in mind. Infinite coolness.
