Artist Inspiration: The Xhosa people are a Bantu ethnic tribe of Southern Africa living in south-east South Africa. The name “Xhosa” comes from that of a legendary leader called uXhosa. There is also a fringe theory that, prior to that, the name Xhosa came from a word meaning “fierce” or “angry” in some San language. The Xhosa Collection was inspired by the strength and determination of their leader Nelson Mandela who fought for freedom for the people of South Africa. The man who made the impossible, possible! So why can’t we all aspire to the same GREATNESS for a better future for all.
