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”.

Never received throw

Unfortunately the package was delivered to the wrong address or possibly stolen. I’m pretty upset because I heard great things about the product. I appreciate the follow up

Hi Nick -

We are so sorry about this issue. We will ship you out a new blanket. I have emailed Aunt Joyce in customer service about this - if you do not hear from her, please email her at support@thulatula.com .
All the best,
