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.

THE INSPIRATION

From the Victorian dresses of the Herero Tribe in Namibia; to the bold Maasai ceremonial necklaces in Kenya; to the majestic style and talent of one of South Africa’s most iconic jazz musicians, Miriam Makeba- Fentse draws inspiration from her extensive travels across Africa and her love for its art and culture.
