About Us

"THE LOOK"MAMBU - We bring you a collaboration between MAMBU DESIGN Designer ostrich eggshell Jewelry and MAMBU ORIGINALS Designer Clothing, creating a chic and classic silhouette with clean lines and exquisite accents. Our aim is to use natural fibres wherever possible and give a fresh take on classic designs beautifully complimented by our jewellery range, which uses the shell of the ostrich egg as its principal medium.

We strive to stay contemporary by keeping abreast with the changing world of colour, fashion and trends and as far as possible to recycle.

For MAMBU DESIGN the idea of creating something of value out of a deemed "waste" product is inspiring and brilliant!!!

Our vision is to grow the brand worldwide and continue to evolve and reinvent ourselves thereby allowing us to improve the lives of our staff and keep things fresh and exciting for all involved.

Products and Designs

All our jewelry is hand-Crafted, some ranges are painted, where as others are etched off with a sharp tool, which is more like drawing. We employ mostly woman, many of whom are single mothers. Mostly our staff come to us with no skills,  and between us we get educated. We have to pioneer solutions for the many challenges that come with the productions of such a unique and unusual medium.

MAMBU DESIGN now has the pleasure of bringing you not only an exquisite Ostrich eggshell Designer jewelry range but also we are very proud to showcase our very elegant and contemporary clothing range that compliment each other beautifully.

MISSION

Our mission is to up-value the product and up-skill the people that work with us particularly as the majority are single mothers.

We strive to stay contemporary by keeping abreast with the changing world of color fashion and and trends and as far as possible to recycle.
