A few years ago I had the pleasure of visiting Design Indaba in South Africa on behalf of my previous employers. One of the standout collections at the show was a beautiful line of knitwear by young designer Laduma Ngxokolo, who was inspired by his Xhosa heritage and the traditional beadwork of the Xhosa people.
At the time, Laduma said that he would love to create an interiors collection, and this year at the Design Indaba Expo, he launched the MaXhosa Collection; a collaboration with South African mohair company Hinterveld.
The MoXhosa mohair throws combine Xhosa heritage with contemporary design. The earthy brown and rich blue colours reference the Eastern Cape landscape while the vibrant cameos reflect the rich hues that are unique to Xhosa culture and its people.
