Guest : Thabo Dube

He was on the back of a motorbike, when in an instant, he hit the ground. After
colliding with another bike, Dube’s right leg had to be amputated and he was confined
to a hospital bed for nine months. The accident wrecked his body. But it was nothing
compared to what it did to his mind. Dube started buying cheap T-shirts and printing on
them. ‘With a T-shirt like this, who needs a leg?’ they read. It was an unusual pursuit, but
it kept him motivated to take on each day. Soon, Dube’s sartorial interest expanded to
leather crafting by stitching wallets from offcuts. Conceptualising new designs gave
Dube a reason to get up each morning. His venture has now grown into a bag business
called LETZ.
