“If your vision is for a year plant wheat, if you vision is for a decade plant trees, and if your vision is for a lifetime plant people.”

African Proverb

Like the rhythmic rise and fall of a cyclist's pedal, the angles within the print of Camo 33 are filled with bright movement. It is only fitting then, that the blue bursts of colour of the eyewear are reminiscent of the parts of a signature bicycle found in Kenya. This bicycle is known as the 'Black Mamba' and is seen laden with towering piles of fresh bread, or bleating goats strapped to the back shelf, or elegant women perched daintily in sidesaddle. The African cyclists make it look effortless as they zip past cars during morning traffic, while in truth the Black Mamba is difficult to ride. It has no gears. The frame is sturdy. Yet it is the smooth transport to many for their morning commute and part of the vibrant heart of Kenya.
