The House of Busby was founded in 1986. The first Busby retail store specialised in handbags and luggage and quickly became a Brand
synonymous with high-quality leather accessories in South Africa.
In the intervening years, Busby has been listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange, privatised by way of a geared private equity transaction, and ultimately acquired and de-leveraged by a consortium led by CAVICO.
The NEW House of Busby is now part of that long view that is synonymous with CAVICO; building its various Brands and businesses from
deep foundations with an emphasis on doing things right.
Today the NEW House of Busby has four core competencies; the development of International Apparel and Footwear Brands; Luggage and Leather Goods; Branded and Optical Eyewear; and Private Label Development.
