Designed by Nontando, these unique pillow covers create a patchwork design comprising of Springbok hide, African genuine leather and Kuba cloth textiles.

Prized for its meat as well as its striking hide, the springbok is the most abundant of South Africa’s antelopes and is one of the few antelope species considered to have an expanding population.

This medium-sized brown and white antelope-gazelle is extremely fast and can reach speeds of 100 km/h (62 mph) and can leap 4 m (13 feet) through the air. The common name “springbok” comes from the Afrikaans and Dutch words spring, meaning jump, and bok meaning male antelope or goat.

Springboks have a pocket-like skin flap that extends along the middle of the back from the tail onwards. When the male springbok is showing off his strength to attract a mate, or to ward off predators, he starts off in a stiff-legged trot, jumping up into the air with an arched back every few paces and lifting the flap along his back. Lifting the flap causes the long white hairs under the tail to stand up in a conspicuous fan shape, which in turn emits a strong scent of sweat.

Our beautiful Springbok pieces are specifically designed and handmade by artists from Southern Africa. Every piece is 100% authentic and affordable.  In addition to our exclusive Springbok hide accessories and decor, we have designed cushion covers that are exclusive to Nontando, blending top quality African leathers, textiles from all regions of the African continent  with Springbok hide.
