Behind the Scenes: A new Collection in progress inspired by Thandi! An incredibly precious rhino who has survived a brutal poaching attack.

FashWand is thrilled to be kicking off 2023 with a new collection featuring a very special and incredibly precious Rhino named Thandi. Thandi is a rare survivor of a tragic poaching attack which took place in March 2012. With the help of dedicated individuals and skilled veterinarians, Thandi survived the poaching attack. Amazingly, Thandi now has four calves (Thembi, Colin, Mthetho & Siya), she is pregnant and even has one grandson!

South Africa is the home to the largest number of rhinos in the world. Rhinos are being brutally attacked and poached for their horn to serve the demands of China and Vietnam, the largest importers of rhino horn. Poachers are often armed with guns and are very dangerous. They frequently use a tranquiliser gun to bring the rhino down, before its horn is hacked off, leaving the rhino to wake up and bleed to death very painfully and slowly.

Thandi is the only Rhino who has survived a poaching attack. Thandi resembles love and hope.

By designing a Collection for Thandi, and sharing her beauty and story through striking fine art and fashion pieces, we hope to inspire and empower individuals to help Thandi and her family and also to End Poaching and to protect Rhinos. The Collection will also support anti-poaching technology programs and it will help raise funds for, adopt and protect Thandi and her family.

We are looking forward to sharing more details with you about Thandi's Collection, and we can not wait to launch her Collection!

Stay tuned to discover more about our inspiration behind Thandi's Collection and to find out about the launch!
