African Queen – a collaboration between Hertex Fabrics and interior designer Nthabi Taukobong – is not only about fabrics. This collection symbolises a celebration of colour, focusing on the richness, release and freedom of the creative process.
"I am finally embracing colour and allowing myself not to be confined to follow predetermined rules," says Nthabi. Hertex Fabrics is proud to partner with Nthabi on this journey of exploration.
"Hertex is a young, dynamic company with their finger on the industry's pulse in a locally and globally changing context. African Queen features a new democracy, a unity of cultures and is a celebration of the beautiful country we live in. It is an explosion of the unlimited colour in our everyday encounters," says Nthabi.
"African Queen is an acknowledgment that we are all descendants of kings and queens. We are together celebrating the jewels that we are and are unapologetic about how bright and wonderful our lives are on this continent. As the saying goes: once
Africa has captured your heart, it never lets you go."
Colour schemes reflect the richness of the African continent, with golden yellow, duck egg blue, midnight blue, rich berry, earthy chocolate, dessert beige and coal black.
