From the early days of my design career in Botswana, I’ve always loved leather. My inspiration from leather comes from the first inhabitants of Botswana and our wild animals in general.

‘Ubuntu’, is derived from a Zulu phrase ‘Umuntu ngumuntu ngabantu’, meaning ‘a person is a person through other people’. Our existence would not be complete without the existence of other people. We need each other in order to exist. The founders being Christians, could relate to this belief, and are advocates for ‘love your neighbour, as you love yourself’ – Matt 22:39
The business is therefore a fusion of the philosophy ‘Ubuntu’ and Fashion, aiming to change the negative morality that reigns in the fashion industry. Out with the ‘me, myself and I’ attitude; UBUNTU Fashion celebrates ‘You, Me and Us’.
