The legendary mother of the nation, Winnie Mandela was a revolutionary leader who triumphed over adversity, overcame persercution and emerged as the matriarch of South Africa’s struggle for freedom. The former wife of Nelson Mandela, Winnie, suffered a great deal along with her children during the time her husband was imprisoned for 27 years by the apartheid government. Her fighting spirit was never broken by torture, her compassion for the poor never dampened by politics and her beauty and dignity never tarnished by her enemies. “May Mam’ uWinnie rest in peace and rise in glory. She refused to be bowed by the imprisonment of her husband, the perpetual harassment of her family by security forces, detentions, bannings, and banishment. Her courageous defiance was deeply inspirational to me, and to generations of activists.” – Desmond Tutu.



Ifreecan specialises in quality, crafted timepieces inspired by the unspoilt African nature. Not only do they put their heart and soul into every watch they make, but their brand is rooted in an aspirational brand that sees Africa reaching greater heights with every second. iFreecan was born from a conversation with the founders’ grandmother, whose hobby of watch restoration was combined with the family’s tradition of leather handling. The iFreecan iconic handcrafted hand-stitching method is a family heirloom that has been passed down four generations. While bamboo heads are imported, assembly and quality assurance takes place in Africa. All watches are waterproof and offer options for internal and external engravings. This personalisation is extended onto their wide, almost unlimited selection of handcrafted hand-stitched leather belt design options.
