Description

Unkown Union Tour

This is a strong black percolated tour catering to lovers of coffee, the art of painting and the art of unique designs extracted from African tribes into world fashion stages, transforming the royal Basotho blanket into fashionable wear.

The roughest, strongest, diamond is found in the city of gold. Johannesburg will not cease to amaze you- beyond the skyscrapers, business districts, fashion districts, and the influx number of people trending in different spaces for so many different reasons. Across that busy highway bridge in that distant land that no one hardly pays attention to, that’s exactly where we are taking you to.

You are in the company of the best in the city. Take a good glance at a space vividly brought back to life by all graffiti colors stamped on old industrial buildings that seem to be abandoned after a treacherous war. We take you inside one of these beautiful buildings where you will experience the best coffee roasted on-site by experts. These same experts will also take you on a very sophisticated coffee tour giving you some insight on how they source their coffee beans to how they combine art and science to produce some of the best roasted coffee in the world.

Our next destination is a gem you’d never expect to find in the city of gold. We directly link you to Unknown Union. "UU research on African indigenous design focuses on visual literacy design language, graphic writing principles, and visual expression which constitute a fundamental component of the architecture of any culture and argues that historical African visual literacy should be studied in more depth." UU merged the Basotho culture (celebrated for their basotho blanket) and the American hip hop culture and came up with an innovative way to express both cultures through fashion. Ladies and gentlemen, we bring you hip hop veteran Mos Def/ Yasiin Bey as the creative director along with Jason Storey as CEO/ founder. They brought cool to Johannesburg in one of the most- not so obvious buildings in Joburg - what you experience next is for your eyes only.
