This past Saturday on the 23rd of March, I took part in the Puma Creative Factory CO-LAB. It was really awesome because it happened to coincide with Earth Hour Day. The event took place at The Grove in South Point, Braamfontein from 11am – 6pm and was followed by an after party from 6pm at the Puma Social Club in De Korte street Braamfontein.
The CO-LAB was named “LOVE THY PLANET” and was all about sustainable thinking. R150b s got you either a T-Shirt or a bag made from certified organic cotton from Kenya. As soon as you received the bag or the T-shirt, it was time to participate and get creative!!!!
Using a dye called Inkodye – I painted a bag and chose a really cool photograph from the chosen range, put it in the sun, let it dry, washed it and allowed it to dry.
The event was really awesome and enjoyable, to add to the fun and creativity, we had a cool DJ who goes by the name of LIL BOW. She was really approachable and I couldn’t help but love her cap which was made of African tribal material which we call “le pagne” in my native country of the DRC. As if LIL BOW was not enough we had funny musical comedy by the DEEP FRIED MAN.
The Puma Creative Factory CO-LAB ended up being a blast!! It had a positive message and gave us the chance to learn a new skill.
So all I can say is we CAPTURED, PRINTED, DEVELOPED AND WORE.
