We are welcoming in a new pop-up shop; I RUN JHB. Brand owners, Neo and King, have developed a street wear brand that is inspired by African heritage and how dynamic City of Gold is shaping it. Each item and accessory uniquely embodies a sense of South African Kasi culture, through traditional fabrics which are combined with global street culture aesthetics. The result is - Umswenko (deluxe). 

Joburg is world class city, that installs an energy into those that call it home. Incorporating a diverse population of people and cultures, this is a city that is a true melting pot of South Africa. I RUN JHB, have highlighted this in their brand by capturing the essence of diversity and aspirational energy. 

Come visit to join the movement, I RUN JHB!
