This adventure started three years ago, they’ve become immigrants for some life reasons, but they aways had that south african soul that never left them.

Together they have created a company that worship the african culture and let people know about their traditions and details. They create graphics, hand carved boxes airplane looking, umbrellas, walking sticks, plastic tubes with carven wooden lids that can be used as seats, cardboard suitcases and some African fabric called kanga that is printed with their designs.
