The name OMVLI means 'source of life', consistent to designer Somila Tshazibane's aim to create bold and timeless pieces that echo the African heritage. His focus is on creating accessories and shoes that incorporate cultural influences of amalgamated African textiles and visuals.
" I draw my inspiration from the culture and diversity of Cape Town and I'm influenced by the experiences I have felt, rather than what I have seen," says Tshazibane.
His latest bag collection is made from the dense woven fabric Hessian. "The products were inspired by the nomadic culture and the textile gave us the direction on what and how we designed the products for this collection", says Tshazibane.
