who we are
FOM specialises in the design and manufacturing of bespoke leather products, clothing and accessories. We are a proudly South African lifestyle brand and strive to source most of our raw material locally.
how it started
Freedom of Movement was founded in 2013 by two brothers with a shared passion for design and entrepreneurship.
Fiercely passionate about their beloved South Africa, the Chartered Accountant and Civil Engineer resolved to boost the local economy through job creation and skill empowerment.
how we do it
Our own highly skilled and talented artisans design and handcraft our leather products in our factory in Stellenbosch, South Africa.
Our methods are based on the traditional principles of leather craftsmanship, utilizing the same tools that have been used to create authentic leather goods for decades. This is then blended with our own more modern techniques to ensure that our production process is not only efficient, but that our products are of the highest quality that can only be achieved by true artisans.
Based on the principles of quality, authenticity and innovative design, our vision is to represent South Africa as a globally recognised premium lifestyle brand.
