Imported or Proudly South African?


So i have had so many mixed feelings lately, as i have seen so many local brands importing products. i’m not sure how i feel about it? Yes there are some stunning goods overseas that us South African’s don’t have, but yet we have so many local talents that are just waiting to be discovered and have similar products that are proudly South African.

I suppose i feel cheated in a way when i see products that are imported, yet i know where one can buy them in South Africa and support a small business, after all we should be supporting local.  I always try find out out if the product i’m purchasing is imported or made locally, and then think twice before purchasing, i have been mislead a few times, but anyhow suppose that’s how it goes.

How do you feel about importing products? I really am trying to make sense of it all, but just have this nagging feeling that South African local brands are so creative and we should be supporting one another instead.
