Six local entrepreneurs dishing out the fine goods
You need to get your hands on this craftsmanship
1. TSAKANI MASHABA, HAMETHOP
The brains behind this fantastic fashion brand, Mashaba has a lot more high craft up her very stylish sleeve — and all inspired by our continent. If the Mali fabric she uses in her super directional clothing line is anything to go by, we can’t wait. The textile is named for and inspired by the wonderful design work of the West African country and handwoven by experts in the Joburg CBD. Government types reading this: we need more of this homegrown production and skills development, thanks.
Your main inspiration? Art; I am at my happiest in an art gallery. I am inspired by artists’ freedom of expression...
