The essence of bundu
The great outdoors definitely stimulates our senses and contributes
to our wellbeing. I was born and raised in beautiful South Africa and my
roots still run deep in the South African soil. It's where my heart is.
Africa will capture you and never leave you.
My journey to this
point in creating bundu has been a long and winding road. I wanted to
create an original brand that would provide a little comfort and joy in
the lives of others, whilst supporting my passion for art and design at
the same time. My inspiration comes from nature, adventure, composition,
photography and art. This is the essence of all our prints. They all
have some kind of origin in nature or personal experience. Everything
from the artwork, designing the prints, to sewing and finishing details
like embroidery is all created in-house.

becoming more and more important to keep in touch with nature and to get
