Helo Andre, since we were last in touch cloth has been woven and number of goods manufactured with many more in the pipeline. We are also planning to stage a fashion show during the world cup to help promote Africa. My agents website is www.southafricatartan.com and mine is www.tartansforafrica.com.
hello! good to hear from you and yes, I am busy: promoting our Eco design Initiative so we can bridge the differences between SA and SE's design industries. It is different here: sustainability is an accepted concept and the big retailers, like H&M offer organic ranges - 100% organic rather than 5% organic content. As you know, we are working to expand the no kak concept to create more and bigger opportunities for sustainable design. I hope that we can do some collaborative work on this in the new year!
As for the weather: its the complete opposite: snow and ice, which makes the experience so magical!
keep in touc!
All the best, Janine
