The Karabo Poppy X Nike Air Force 1 collection is OUT NOW😱! Not 1, not 2 but 3 Air Force 1 designs I got to CREATE with home (Africa – South Africa) as the source of inspiration. A true honour to be partnering with #NikeByYou to give you the opportunity to customise my design on the site too. This became more than just a collab! The reach for African artists is expanding exponentially and I am filled with so much joy to create a first of its kind here with @Nike, where a sneaker design that has been a part of my life and the life of my family, community and the that of people I look up to has a variation designed by me 🤯. This hasn’t become real for me yet but can be real for you when you order it online – available worldwide on the Nike site ✍🏾👟🌍🇿🇦🇳🇬🇱🇸🇺🇸🇬🇧🇸🇪🇷🇴🇵🇸🇮🇳🇨🇦🇦🇺! Link in bio! Thank you to every person that was part of getting me here, I will keep on honouring your support daily. — — — #KaraboPoppy #KaraboPoppyXNike #KaraboPoppyAirForce1 #KaraboByYou #Nike #AirForce1 #Illustration #Design #WomenInIllustration #AfricanAesthetic

5. Mungo’s First Organic Towel

As part of its sustainability pursuit, this year Mungo made the commitment to only source and use organic cotton. The Aegean towel combines two weaves: the honeycomb adds dimension and absorbency, while the diamond weave creates character. While simultaneously better for the planet, the cotton is also much softer than the non-organic variety.
