This artwork was created by Shanell, a confident and spirited young woman who is passionate about art and dance and is part of a local dance group. For Shanell, Lalela is a refuge where she can escape the pressures of life in the township.
With sustainability and ethical fashion being two of our greatest focuses this year, we have partnered with Uzwelo to create a reusable bag with our signature Lalela style. Uzwelo is a company driven to empower families and uplift communities through various poverty-reducing initiatives. We love their initiative and are thrilled to call them our partners.
These bright bags are a perfect replacement for single use plastic. Each bag can be folded into its interior pocket when not in use, making it easy to store and carry within a normal sized handbag. All artworks featured on these bags were created by our Lalela learners.
