Tendai Tawonezvi, founder of NeoBantu says this: “Growing up in Zimbabwe taught us to be creative about the garments we wore and in so doing we learned the value of what we had and grew a deeper appreciation for it. My sister and I often found ourselves at flea markets and second hand stores, to our mum's horror, and then at the tailor to make edits on our finds. Often times we scoured the markets for suitable fabrics and used the inspiration all around us to create our own looks. Through it all, we’re able to create our own distinct style.”
