PRESERVING THE AFRICAN AESTHETIC
At the heart of a traditional African home seats on a fire a 3-legged pot whose warmth brings people closer together, no matter what it’s cooking. Lepot is a premium South African brand that, much like the African pot threads people together through fashion.
Founded by Melikhaya Hempe, Lepot draws inspiration from the African value system and threads it with leading global trends to create clothing that gives comfort, quality, identity and a sense of belonging. In a world that has a generation of young people leave home in the pursuit of opportunity, Lepot exist not only as a reminder of home but what it means to draw inspiration from the past to shape the future.
