‘ZA-Kuza’ Reversible Bomber Jacket


The ‘ZA-Kuza’ crewneck sweater and reversible bomber jacket was inspired by the full body tattoo art which the Japanese Yakuza gangs are known to mark themselves with. The design has a uniquely South African twist on the art style, incorporating elements indigenous to South Africa in place of the Japanese elements which the Yakuza use.
