KunGwaani's Brings You Warm Greetings From Two Remarkable Nations!
As a brand KunGwaani's borrows it's energy and vibe from the people who define everyday life and culture in South Africa and Jamaica. They are fun, friendly and full of peace and "lurve"!
KunGwaani's was started by best friends of, Caribbean descent, Lucy & Celia, who both share a mutual love for everything Caribbean and African.
After visiting South Africa multiple times and falling in love with the culture and the people, we recognized how so many things were similar to our Caribbean heritage.
To us, it made sense to create something that beautifully blended both cultures; add to that a divine love of food and KUNGWAANI'S was born.
