Last night we took part in Missibaba’s Boombox project held at The WHATIFTHEWORLD gallery. We were extremely chuffed to hear that our KG customised Boombox bag raised a whopping R7000 for SHIFT, an organisation dedicated to empowering youth and rural communities through the transfer of practical skills for social, environmental and economic wellbeing. Our exclusive one off design featured tanned suede covered in an array of our semi precious stones which were delicately hand stitched by our team in Durban. Well done to everyone involved and a huge congrats to the Missibaba’s for such a fantastic auction and event!
| THE BOOMBOX Project |
Collaborating with a group of the country’s leading design talents, each creative was given leather panels for a Missibaba BOOMBOX bag to customise. The customised panels were then returned to the Missibaba studio for assembly.
The one of a kind BOOMBOX bags were auctioned for charity with all proceeds donated to SHIFT, . Committed to collaborative practices, SHIFT applies their experience of human-centered design to ensure that voices are heard and needs are met through their work. SHIFT aspires beyond ‘sustainability’ – aiming to achieve prosperity, by design.
