About Zenwa

Zenwa Concepts, is a company founded in 2013 with the aim of transforming the Founder’s corporate organization development, change and training career experience and personal creative talents into personal change solutions individuals can apply in all spheres of their lives during times of renewal and rebirth.

We are revolutionizing both change management and personal transformation by focusing on the uniqueness of each person’s mind, body and soul for a holistic approach to managing change, thus inspiring an individualized approach to managing change both at home, at work and at play.

Research shows, any successful change happens when each person is able to transform to the desired state.

We are based in a small town called Mount Fletcher in the Eastern Cape, and also in Johannesburg, South Africa. We’ve been in operation for eight years.  We offer Online learning, mentoring, coaching and support solutions, one-of-a-kind clothing, decor and art, Refurbed furnishings and tailored event-based mind, body and soul experiences to clients.

Zenwa Concepts has a vision of delivering sustainable change solutions for individuals and businesses in Africa thus building the African legacy. We always aim to embrace and nurture the UNIQUE mind, body and soul of those who cross our path.

Our mission is to Inspire Authenticity, protect and preserve the African Legacy for future generations through art as a medium and channel of personal healing, expression and growth. Since inception, the business has evolved and thrived in an environment where change is now considered the “norm”.

“Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.”

Pablo Picasso

Zenwa Concepts partners with other service providers to develop frameworks, expertise and resources to deliver sustainable change and transformation. Our team in Johannesburg and Mount Fletcher comprises agile, innovative thinkers who know how to listen, think, then act. The organization aims to leave behind a legacy of change and transformation best practice within the organizations and individuals they have the privilege of working with.

Zenwa Concepts is committed to the development of previously disadvantaged individuals, we are mainly focusing at developing young and old aspiring creative people who have a passion for art. This is based on our foundational principle that art is the best form of self-expression. We believe that self-expression and self-awareness help individuals and organisations able to bring their transformational aspirations to life, thus investment into art enables self-awareness and self-leadership skills, critical during change.

Zenwa aspires to growing and fostering the entrepreneurial spirit with the teams it works with. Therefore partners with entrepreneurial individuals in delivering its mission with a total complement of three full-time Zenwa employees and independent team members.

Zenwa clothing, decor and art range… Why Zenwa?

Zenwa Concepts clothing, decor and art range Zenwa Concepts is about celebrating self-love; feeling positive about life and future prospects without breaking the bank.

“I’ve always been drawn to unique things, I’m not a follower, I break new ground and do things that are unthinkable. I’m known for discovering clothes that people can’t find in your everyday, ordinary shops.

“With Refurb’ed furnishings, it started off with a journey to a antique store with a friend, she was hesitant about buying a chair but I convinced her to buy the couch and we gave it a new lease on life.

People are so quick to throw things away these days, I see the potential in the over-used OR in what is ready to be thrown away.”

About ZenwaThe name

“Zenwa has been adapted from my son’s name, Ezenwa (Eze) which means King. I want people to feel special, like royalty, when they own a piece from Zenwa Concepts.”

One of a Kindwas inspired by

My favourite reggae song, She’s Royal by Tarrus Riley

 “And she's royal, yeah so royal
And, I want her in my life
I never knew anyone so one-of-a-kind, no
The way she move to her own beat
She has the qualities of a queen, She's a queen
Ooh Ooh what a natural beauty
No need no make-up to be a cutie
She's a queen, she's a queen

And when they ask what a good woman's made of
She's not afraid and ashamed of
Who she is

She's royal yeah, so royal
And I need her in my life
I never knew anyone, so one of a kind
Until the night that I see in your eyes”
