About Us

Dartel was born in 2011 with the owner, Mari Dickenson’s love for accessories and being creative.  Mari studied Clothing, Marketing and Design at the University of Pretoria.  She is the mother of two daughters, Ilze and Leane.  They are often the muses in her work.  Her husband’s support gives her the strength to go on when things get tough.

After designing her first hand bag, her friends and family insisted on their own. From here on the business has grown, and several bags, jewellery and accessories found loving homes.

In 2013, Ouma Ngoma joined the team.  Ouma studied Clothing and Design at  Victor’s dressmaking in Pretoria.  Her passion for design and fashion is a big inspiration to Dartel.

All our products are original and of outstanding quality.  Most of the bags can be hand washed and are extremely comfortable.  Our range of accessories will compliment any outfit.

Good service to our customers and communication is our motto.  We will strive to make and deliver   your ordered products within the shortest possible time.  Feel free to contact us if you have any   questions.
