Marabou Essentials is the brainchild of Fentse Mokale who was born and raised in Phokeng- a village in the North West province of South Africa. She trained as a Chemical Engineer and while still working in the engineering sector got inspired to create Marabou Essentials.
Fentse is the designer and lead creative within the brand. The whole idea of Marabou Essentials came from Fentse’s desire to make a mark in the world through the use of her creativity. Her accessories and wall art are individually designed pieces inspired by her travels, the connection with the people she meets as well as her believe that stories need to be told. Her love of art and design, her belief in the importance of storytelling and her drive to make new, inspiring and adventurous designs come alive into elaborate creations that fuel what is now Marabou Essentials.
