The Stubborn Chicken Khanga – White & Blue


A multipurpose cloth that can become a tablecloth, picnic blanket, wall hanging, chair throw, bed cover, apron, dress, skirt, shawl, towel, sarong, or even a sunshade on the beach. The “Stubborn Chicken” design is based on the African proverb “A stubborn chicken learns its lesson in a hot pot of soup” and festooned with vintage radios, aeroplanes and, of course, the aforementioned chicken. Plucky, indeed!

Sharon Lombard and Heidi Chisholm, two South African expats living in the USA, have tapped into their collective history to form the creative enterprise Mr Somebody & Mr Nobody. Working collaboratively from Miami and New York City these female "gents" are all about the unexpected and unusual peppered with African wit and proverbial wisdom. While raising existential questions regarding transition, change, making a home, making do and maintaining hope despite the certain uncertainties of life, we find that their tongue-in-cheek curiosities and retro-inspired home goods are just plain old pick-me-ups.
