Q. Why leather bags / what was the inspiration?

I have always had a soft spot for leather products.

I think leather is one of the most complex yet interesting and beautiful material ever.

I like doing things slightly different and after 4 years of conceptualizing and inspiration, I finally decided to bring the idea to life with the assistance of my creative partner SfetsiWhat do you think the state of the arts or fashion is in Botswana as compared to the whole world?

Q. Batswana are seeing what’s happening with the rest of the world but they still want their own flavour, a little bit of our culture in their style.

I am happy to see more designers and creators pop up and own their style, the artistry is growing and many are incorporating it, in their everyday life.

The world is watching, and we must milk it.

Q. How the market received your products?

With the bags, we have only released one sample and a range that was bought out by a retail store in cape town, most of the sales are by orders and we are very particular with how much product we produce because its limited editions and with every garment comes uniqueness for the customer. What are your hopes with the label?

With the bags I went for a traditional feel but with global appeal.

I am happy to see a few pictures with people overseas loving and rocking the bags. I plan to take Botswana to the world through the bags and to collaborate with more leather manufacturers to create master pieces.

Q. Last words for people who want to start or are already in the leather production industry?

Leather is one of the best industries anyone can venture in.

It’s hard to get pure leather products overseas and once they see it, they want it.

The Italians are big on leather products and we have to learn to penetrate other markets and go beyond Botswana.

There’s nothing wrong with trying or being rejected, keep knocking till someone stocks your products.
