The giraffe in our logo shows a young giraffe, which were presented to Rulers and Kings as gifts, symbolising peace and goodwill between nations.

Established in 2019. With so many people leaving Africa, our thought was to give them a piece of home as a reminder. We use 100% cotton ShweShwe made in South Africa, it is practical in any climate and allows the skin to breathe. ShweShwe originated in Europe when cloth, for clothing, was imported from India. Natural dye from the Indigofera Tinctoria plant was used to obtain the original indigo coloured ShweShwe. The German settlers brought the fabric to our shore during the 19th century; and the fabric cottoned on into the traditional wear of Xhosa women.
