Rooted in Cape Town, Mandatory began with the idea to build gear that lasts. Bags and accessories made to make your life not only easier, but make you look damn good too. With durability, longevity, functionality, and stylishness as the core of our brand, these bags are for everyone – whether you are a he, she, or they. Mandatory is a lifestyle!
We believe in a timeless look, and our bags are just that. We carefully select the best materials and fabrics and design each bag in a unique and distinctive way. A unisex look together with compelling practicality, high-end quality, persistence, and trendiness sets us apart – making these bags last you through all your adventures.
We release our collections in small batches, putting quality and our core values first. Each design has class, and an unapologetic modern edge. Every bag is designed to innovate and uplift the South African fashion industry. One bag at a time.
