In connection with the Post-colonialism which emphasises on a postcolonial identity a hybrid culture constituted of Western cultural influence and the native culture (Fischer -Tine, 2011). This notion elevates the native Africans that have allowed themselves to be limited by the past colonial experiences. It is often said that South Africa is one year behind than the rest of the world in terms of design. It does not have to be that way since we can come up with new ideas that are only unique to us and thus we can turn the wheel and be the ones creating the trends and not just following them. One of the problem that the Western world is facing is that so many ideas have already been up into practice, just as land is scares. However in African there are still so many unexplored opportunities, and so much land which still needs to be discovered. African has so much more to offer in terms of design.
