Maxhosa Africa, renowned for its fusion of tradition and contemporary design, is embarking on a journey to redefine luxury living. In a strategic move to expand its lifestyle offerings, the fashion powerhouse has ventured into a ground-breaking collaboration with Fieldbar, a trendsetting cooler box brand. This is to create an enticing blend of style and functionality.

With a keen eye for design innovation, Maxhosa has taken its partnership with Fieldbar to new heights by infusing the cooler boxes with its iconic aesthetic. By introducing custom-made straps decorated with Maxhosa’s signature patterns, the collaboration has elevated the cooler box into a statement piece, seamlessly blending fashion with utility. This unique touch not only enhances the appeal of the cooler boxes but also reflects Maxhosa’s commitment to artistry and attention to detail.

Expanding Horizons in Lifestyle Living

Maxhosa’s venture into the realm of luxury home and lifestyle living extends beyond the collaboration with Fieldbar. The brand’s visionary approach includes the introduction of lavish décor tiles and handcrafted cooler boxes, adding a touch of opulence to modern living spaces. Building upon its existing homeware collection, which features customizable cushions, curtains, and rugs, Maxhosa’s expansion into décor tiles and cooler boxes highlights its commitment to offering holistic lifestyle solutions that embody African heritage and modern sophistication.

Furthermore, Maxhosa Africa and Fieldbar’s collaboration spreads beyond Fieldbar. The brand also has a partnership with local tile manufacturer Tile Africa. These collaborations not only amplify the brand’s reach but also showcase its dedication to supporting local skill and innovation on a global stage.

A Reflective Journey

At the moment, Maxhosa is preparing to make its mark on the international stage with the opening of its first pop-up store in the U.S. The brand is still captivating audiences with its AW 2024 collection. The collection titled “My Conviction,” pays homage to the brand’s journey over the past eleven years, seamlessly blending elements from previous collections with fresh, contemporary touches.

In a video shared by Haute Couture News, Laduma Ngxokolo, Founder of Maxhosa Africa said “I revisited some of the ideas I had in the past and changed them a little bit. I’ve had a calendar of designs for the past 15 years that I’ve created, some have never been seen before or most of our customers don’t know them, so I took some of those ideas and infused them into the new collection and updated some of them”.

Through this reflective approach, Maxhosa reaffirms its commitment to celebrating African culture and heritage while embracing forward-thinking design concepts.

Brands’ Commitment to Quality and Sustainability

In addition to its creativity, Maxhosa remains committed to sustainability and longevity – a philosophy shared by its collaborators at Fieldbar. With a focus on quality artistry and durability, Fieldbar’s “drinks boxes” and “gin trunks” symbolize the character of sustainable design. By offering repairable and replaceable parts, Fieldbar embodies the timeless appeal of quality products.

Moreover, the collaboration between these two brands offer consumers a spectrum of choices with cooler boxes available in six different colours at a price of R3000, available on Maxhosa Africa.

In essence, Maxhosa Africa and Fieldbar’s collaboration represents a beautiful union of tradition, innovation, artistry, and functionality. Through their shared commitment to excellence and sustainability, the two brands are not only redefining luxury living but also shaping the future of African-inspired lifestyle aesthetics on a global scale.
