Textiles Inspiration: Laduma Ngxokolo

Laduma Ngxokolo Xhosa Knitwear

Just had to share this designers knitted sweater collection with you. Laduma Ngxokolo is a knitwear designer from South Africa and takes inspiration from his Xhosa roots. The sweaters have intricate patterns and designs which are taken from the inspirational beadwork of the Xhosa people. I have always loved African textiles and seeing designers using their rich African heritage as inspiration. Laduma is the international winner of the Society of Dyers and Colourists (SDC) Design Competition.
