Making your goals come to life can be possible, do not believe that? Well, look no further because Inga Gubeka has made that possible as he has been selected as one of Glenfiddich Maverick at an event that was held in Braamfontein. Inga was given the honour to serve as a Maverick and making a name for himself in the business field. After achieving so much, who wouldn’t be inspired by him?
In 2014 Indalo Décor collaborated with Craig Port during his Summer collection. This happened at Cape Town at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. As the accessories came flooding in the Fashionista’s couldn’t help themselves but drool.
I had the opportunity of interviewing Inga Gubeka of Indalo Décor to get an insight about his company, being honoured as a Glenfiddich Maverick and the power of making your goals a reality.

How did Indalo Décor come about? Is it something that you had always visioned?
I established Indalo in 2012 as a furniture design and manufacturing studio but then saw an opportunity in the industrial design space, where you can design and manufacture fast moving goods such as hand bags, clocks, lamps, small leather goods and small wooden goods. I have always had this vision for my brand that it would go big because i was designing unique products.
