Isimo Somhlaba Piece

Size Guide

The Herd is inspired by and pays homage to the iconic beading culture pioneered and mastered by Zulu women.


The latest drop "isimo somhlaba "(the condition of the land) is inspired by one of the first bead excavations that were discovered in uMgungundlovu KZN, which was the capital of the Zulu kingdom during the reign of King Dingane. The beads excavated relate to the period 1828 - 1839. Reading up on these excavations inspired us to imagine what the landscape looked like then. We hope these pieces get your imagination running.
