If you haven’t yet made your way to see the Design Indaba Emerging Creatives Expo at the V&A Watershed, we suggest you get down there, like…now. This week we’ve been catching up with a few rad Cape Town based designers showcasing their work.
Meet Nondwe Nyathi from Indwe Designs:
Q: You’re a self-taught designer, what motivated you to do this?
A: My late Brother played a big role my journey of creativity. Assisting him in his recycling business and him exposing me to the world of Art and Creativity, led me to witness off cuts of leather being thrown away and a new spark of creativity went off and fired up the origins of Indwe Designs.
Q: Where do you draw inspiration from?
A: I’m inspired by our rich and diverse cultures we have in Africa. How people(Women) in the olden days used to adorn themselves with what they had and made themselves look beautiful. So my brand is mainly taking what other people would ignore because they think it can’t be used and create high end Authentic and modern pieces that reflect sentiments when worn, for the intrepid and adventurous.
Q: What are some of your favourite piece?
