Leanda Trautman mysteriously refers to her past as a mixed masala and if one delves into the rich history of Alex & Marla one can almost feel the sights and sounds that have resulted in what has become one of South Africa's top, classic leather product manufacturers.
Leandra was born in Mowbray in the Cape and grew up in Hout Bay. It was while studying Industrial Design that she fell in love with the feel of leather which she says, has personality and history.
In 2009 she moved to Gansbaai with her Spanish husband Jorge and in 2015 established the company that has now become the much spoken about Alex & Marla that she named after her children.
The brand name has grown from strength to strength and apart from her private clients, Leanda boasts large corporate companies on her books. Amongst others, the five star Grootbos Nature Reserve and top travel agency Aventura Africa use her Alex & Marla bags for corporate gifting. Leanda’s personal dream for Alex & Marla is to have Rovos Rail as a client... a company she greatly admires for their railroad that showcases excellence of a bygone era... much like her own products do.
Alex & Marla strive to be as sustainable as possible and work closely with other proudly South African businesses wherever they can.
