Company Overview

Handcrafting memories, Building a legacy in each and every craftsmanship

Shilongo Leather Works is a family-owned business conceived out of a great passion to craft durable products that would not only create an appreciated brand but also build the Shilongo family legacy.

Launched in 1986 by Sakeus and Selma Shilongo; Shilongo Leather Works is embedded with a rich history of tenacity and honesty that brought about the existence of a now renowned handcraft leatherworks company.

A history of a man determined to use his craftsmanship to create a purely Namibian brand that would grow both in influence and quality becoming one of Namibia’s most favored brands of leather wear.

The success of Shilongo is built on a foundation of expert leather knowledge with an ongoing focus on research and development as well as ensuring staff is continually trained to be leaders in their field, which in turn ensures the production of fit-for-purpose high-performance leather products.

The manufacturing of leather goods goes from tanned leather to finished products. Most of the products are made from Kudu leather hence the company logo, so giving products a unique look.
