Vetches and passion flowers have modified some of their leaves and converted them into tendrils. These grope around in space until they touch the stem of another plant and swiftly coil around it. The tendrils then coil and pull the plant up towards the sunlight.

That’s the most beautiful thing I’ve ever heard. I want to write a short story about this.

Wow

MAXHOSA BY LADUMA ‘My Heritage, My Inheritance’ Fashion Film.

A while back, we posted the trailer for the highly anticipated fashion film by South African knitwear designer Laduma Ngxokolo. Through his knitwear line, Ngxokolo seeks to preserve culture through contemporary fashion, and now film. This film was created to capture the deeper meaning behind the brand.

Centered around the theme of the Xhosa Ulwaluko (male circumcision and initiation) ceremony, the film chronicles the events that take place during this time - one of the most important events in the life of a young man as he graduates into manhood. Ngxokolo gives us a powerful and rare glimpse into a world reserved only for those entitled to undergo this process and educates us on the philosophies behind his brand.

"This is my heritage, this is my inheritance."

Powerful.
