Mpufane says that they had an opportunity to celebrate a living icon.

She's a big proponent of protecting the heritage of the Ndebele art, and promoting it across the globe adds Mpufane.

The opportunity came when we questioned how we share tea moments, while we celebrate her and the art form of Ndebele painting.

Mpufane says that tea encourages and brings people together for a conversation.

You'd be surprised at how many people don't know about Gogo Esther Mahlangu's work adds Mpufane.

As a creative agency, we don't take credit, we sit back and watch a master at work says Mpufane.
