I grew up in South Africa also known as the "Rainbow Nation" surrounded by diverse culture and ethnicity. This exposed me to an incredibly wide range of vibrant colours in the form of cuisines, art, music and tribal designs.
Talama was born out of the love of my African heritage and my passion for Interior Design. Take a journey with me exploring the wonders of Africa through its textiles, patterns, vibrant colours and art.

The Himba tribe in Namibia, still adorn themselves with traditional jewellery according to ancient customs.Both men and women wear large numbers of necklaces, arm bracelets, sometimes almost like sleeves, made from ostrich eggshell beads, grass, cloth and copper and weighing as much as 40 kg, as well as bracelets around the legs. Iron oxide powder with its shiny effect is worn as a cosmetic like western glitter.
