Introducing Pumzika Collection 🤎


After years of planning and months of contemplating the name of the new collection, I had an "aha" moment while attending a panel discussion at the UN Commission on the Status of Women(CSW68).. One of the panelists, Holi from Madagascar, was asked what she enjoys doing when she is not working. Boldly, she stated: REST. Recognizing the pervasive issue of women being overworked and exhausted, she declared that rest is her gift to herself. In that moment, the word "pumzika" came to mind. Pumzika, which means rest in Swahili, encapsulated the essence perfectly for ILAVA’s newest collection.

Thus, in tribute to women worldwide on their quest for rest, ILAVA proudly presents the Pumzika Collection.
