Zulucow appearing in ‘John Lewis’ !

Exciting News! Zulucow will be stocked in JOHN LEWIS! 

Zulucow  in ‘John Lewis & Partners’

2020 has started with a bang for Zulucow! Firstly Cheltenham Racecourse, offered me a stand in ‘The Shopping Village’ at ‘The Cheltenham Festival’ in March. Then, the next day, I received a call to say my application for a ‘pop-up-shop’ in John Lewis, was successful!

Being such a small business (only me;) trying to establish my brand; it’s fantastic to be endorsed by such a highly respected, high street store.

John Lewis Head Office loves Zulucow’s sustainably sourced cowhide and natural leather products; and the fact that Zulucow is helping to create long term, sustainable and ethical jobs for the Zulu ladies in South Africa.

They offered me various ‘JL and Partners’ stores; I opted for a shopping retail park: ‘Bluewater‘ relatively near me, in Kent. So, if you are in the area just before Easter (March 30th to April 5th) please come and see me. I would love to meet you!

Bluewater is an ‘out of town’ retail destination, renowned for its smart designer brands like All Saints, Massimo Dutti and ‘The White Company’

What would you like to see in my  pop up shop? Zulucow’s sustainably sourced, Nguni Cowhide Rugs? ZC’s statement, luxurious cushions? Or my cowhide and natural leather bags and belts, all finely crafted by Ma Philippine, Nelly, Gugu, Thandi and the rest of the Zulucow team in South Africa?

I will definitely be taking Zulucow’s dramatic wall art, (so popular at Christmas) to my John Lewis pop-up. Nyvasha the talented Zimbabwean artisan I work with in Johannesburg, is busy crafting more of his eye-catching; incredibly realistic ‘Buck’ and Elephant ‘Heads.’ The dramatic White ‘Stag’ Heads sold out over Christmas, as did the Elephant Heads and Ju Ju Hats. I’m hoping he can make the order in time for the pop-up shop and The Cheltenham Festival.

I will of course also be taking Zulucow’s popular cowhide bags. Which would you like to see in my pop-up? The ZC Slouch, Bucket, Tote or Weekend Bag? Do drop me a line if you have any ideas; I always love hearing from my fab Zulucow customers and followers.

Hamba Kahle!
