Stoned Cherry fabrics

Stoned Cherry was founded in 2000 and is one of the leading contemporary African fashion labels. The founder is designer Nkhensani Nkosi. Their work has quite a strong traditional influence, and their pieces almost have "an attitude". All I can say, down there in Swaziland we were all mad for it. We'd go to every now and then Jo'burg and try their pieces on and despair at their prices (which were not terrible, but we were students and used to the local prices).

Now Nkhensani has introduced a textile collection and you'll all agree it's rather awesome.

PS: Once, they had a basket full of discounted prices in the shop. The articles were tops made out of two strips of fabric: one like a boob tube that was laced up at the back, and the other piece hung from the front almost to your ankles. And I did get one. Who know what this can be in a few years!
