‘Our garments are designed to last and manufactured with integrity.

This comes after the 32-year-old beauty gushed about her love for her homeland, South Africa.
‘Africa. A distant and intimidating land to many, untouchable in its vastness, wild to its core, where weakness flounders and strength essential for survival,’ said the mother of two.
‘An unforgiving land where poverty and hunger are a daily struggle, a country plagued with troubles and strife,’ added the Vogue cover girl.
‘South Africa, my birthplace, my home, sits at the southern tip of this land. A country with a resounding heartbeat, and soulful energy where beauty is illuminating and sorrow so vividly present.’
Candice then shared: ‘The unspoken truths of children taking care of children in the many shanty towns scattered all over the country, where “sangomas” witch doctors offer superstitious remedies and where colour and religion a bloody battlefield for hundreds of years…’
She also said on her Tropic Of C site that she gives back: ‘We create partnerships and programs that support women around the globe.
‘From commissioning products from artisan groups in the developing world to our commitment to organizations like mothers2mothers, female empowerment is central to our mission.’
