CRE­ATE, IN­NO­VATE!

BUSI­NESS Lu­las­clan WHO Bonolo He­len Chep­ape WHERE Mafikeng

HER WORK Bonolo’s work as a de­signer and owner of Lu­las­clan, a cre­ative dé­cor con­sul­tancy of­fer­ing be­spoke tex­tiles, is in­spired by her child­hood and vis­its to her grand­mother’s house in Lim­popo where she was sur­rounded by mu­sic, art and sto­ry­telling. She would also as­sist in her mother’s garage tuck shop, which grew her en­tre­pre­neur­ial spirit. “In-be­tween help­ing cus­tomers, I’d nur­ture my skill in il­lus­tra­tion. I would sit and draw for hours on end!” Bonolo says.

Af­ter com­plet­ing a bach­e­lor’s de­gree in Graphic De­sign, Bonolo poured her heart into launch­ing her busi­ness which now boasts a pop­u­lar range of con­tem­po­rary African de­signs on por­trait scat­ter cush­ions that “de­pict an op­ti­mistic fu­ture and cel­e­brate women”.
