Yvonne Chaka Chaka can only be described as the sweetheart of South Africa and an icon of note. A singer, songwriter, actress, entrepreneur, humanitarian and now most recently, homeware collection owner, Yvonne is a woman of grace and elegance and this collection represents her in every way possible. This collaboration between herself and Woolworths celebrates the melting pot of cultures within our country and showcases the absolute beauty in homeware design.

The Chaka Chaka Homeware collection is inspired by materials and patterns commonly found in traditional African attire and prominently features the traditional crown (isicholo) and neckpiece, which are both of historical significance to our African culture and heritage. South Africa’s national flower, the Protea, is also part of the inspiration for the designs. Beautifully conceived in monochrome black-and-white, with some products featuring tasteful portraits of the lady herself, as well as intermittent touches of gold flora, it’s a timeless range suited to a variety of dining occasions.

"The Chaka Chaka limited-edition homeware range will add depth to any setting from contemporary to more traditional,” shares Youves Govender, Woolworths General Manager of Homeware and Beauty. “This collection represents quality; it is decorative but functional so it’s suitable for daily use, as well as special events."

The collection consists of a mug, cup and saucer, creamer, sugar bowl, teapot, salad bowl, charger plate, 16-piece cutlery set and a 12-piece dinner set (including four of each in a range of dinner plates, side plates and dessert bowls). Yvonne created The Chaka Chaka Homeware Collection for every home and each high-quality piece reflects her own elegant style with representing the beauty of Africa. All products are made from porcelain which are dishwasher and microwave safe, making the range practical and suitable for everyday use. These items have been decorated with real gold to add a sense of elegance to the range while still keeping it classic.

The entire range is absolutely beautiful in design and sure to add some local flair to your dining room table. Shop the collection at your local Woolworths store or online today.
