Dlozi ngwana badimo is a South African brand established in 2020 during the lock down period. The founder and CEO Nape Phasha refers to the brand as a movement rather than a clothing brand. He says the aim is to emphasize identity that was long demonized through fashion. In only one month of Dlozi ngwana badimo's existence we shipped to all 9 provinces.
I found this very strange because dlozi ngwana badimo was meant to be a family brand as I've always been referred to as ngwana badimo from the small village of mohlaletse ga sekhukhune were I was born and bread.
My late mother is an inspiration behind this movement. She was a traditional womb specialist as she also struggled to conceive after marriage which led to her undergoing the initiation process and only after that myself and my other 3 sibling were born. This is were addressing myself as ngwana badimo comes from. I am a child of the ancestors and after I printed myself a t shirt and posted a picture on social media, South Africa could relate and late that same night my inbox was floating with messages of people wanting the exact same t shirt.
This is how it all started and as they say the rest is history. I'm proud to say we have shipped across Africa and 2 years later the demand is still overwhelming.
