Learn Something New
  • Inspired by the stripes of timeless Xhosa clothing and blankets. Unique to the Xhosa people, the predominant use of black and white in their designs is steeped in tradition. Cultural rituals are symbolic through every stage of life and development for the Xhosa people, such as knowing one’s Isiduko (clan). This is considered so important that when two strangers meet for the first time, the first identity that gets shared is Isiduko. This forms the origins of ubuntu (human kindness), a behavior synonymous with this nation, as extending a helping hand to a complete stranger when in need. It is also the roots of the saying “it takes a village to raise a child”.

Beautiful, High Quality and Craftmanship

I chose the Xhosa Stripe pattern because I wanted something that was going to pop and catch my eye, and work well with my cottage-farmhouse style.

 I could not be more pleased with the high quality and craftsmanship.
