Jan Pierewiet was born to the creative enthusiast Danica, in 2016. It is a proudly South African owned online store, that ships nation wide. We specialize in handmade leather diaper bags and accessories for moms and babies. Our unique name is inspired by the Afrikaans folk song, Jan Pierewiet written by CJ Langenhoven. It was a childhood favourite! Jan Pierewiet is now owned by the energetic sister-in-love duo Nita and Leanne.
