The new Mulamula collection by south african fashion-designer Rich Mnisi in guardian figureconsists of two pieces, a leather chaise and a seat made of the same leather with a bronze base.
The collection is inspired by Mnisi's great-grandmother who were as a guardian figure for him.
"For me, the chaise, which takes the shape of Nwa-Mulamula's body in the form of a navy leather couch, represents her presence and long-lasting teachings," says Mnisi.
"The stool, in the shape of an eye with gold puddles, represents her tears. Without her I couldn't be the person I am today."
The Nwa-Mulamula collection was launched as part of a group exhibition of multidisciplinary designers at the Southern Guild's Cape Town Silo District Gallery.
