Craig Jacobs is the creator of clothing label, Fundudzi that was founded in 2004.
“Providing a capsule wardrobe for free spirited individuals seeking pieces with a distinctive signature which subtly draw inspiration from the people and places unsoiled by the noise of modern life, the name Fundudzi is inspired by a body of water, Lake Fundudzi, which is one of our most precious ecological treasures as well as being a sacred site for the vhaVenda tribe,” said Craig.
The label has featured twice in Women’s Wear Daily, the world’s most Influential fashion newspaper, as well as showcased as part of C’est Couture in Paris as an SA Tourism Initiative in July 2007. Jacobs has represented South Africa at Fabric for Thought and the Sustainable Fashion at Koldinghus between May-September 2009 in Copenhagen as part of the World Sustainability Summit. In April 2012 Fundudzi was the first eco and ethical label to join Edgars, South Africa’s leading fashion retailer and the first African label to be stocked at JPSelects.com, the leading sustainable e-tailer in the US.
Incorporating natural and locally-sourced materials like cotton and cashmere, Fundudzi pays homage to sustainable design. The label also supports a range of initiatives, including the local crafting industry, up-cycling projects and organisations like Cheezekids of Humanity, CANSA SA and The Trust.
Jacobs has also lent his fashion advice to written articles for publications including; the Sunday Times, Cream (Australia), ELLE SA, Y Mag and Design Indaba.
