THE DESIGNER- Fentse Mokale

A trained Chemical Engineer from South Africa, Fentse, takes the concept of traditional African rope necklaces, to engineer contemporary unique shapes, lines, and curves.

Most of Fentse's work uses Shweshwe fabric, proudly seen as an iconic Southern African fabric. The fabric is used in traditional ceremonies, and to make the clothing of newly married Xhosa and Sotho women.
