Savior Brand Co’s funky tablet and cell phone covers were a huge hit at this month’s i heart market in Durban. Gorgeous leather and denim covers made in bright colours, the brand was born after owner Max Pienaar made his own tablet cover from off-cuts from his textiles business. ‘Friends saw it and asked me to make a cover for their tablet or smart phone, and so Savior was born,’ he explains. ‘People seem to like the fact that the covers are simple and understated in their design and the fact that they are well-made from good quality leather and fabric.’ Besides the fact that they are stylish and colourful, we love that there is a conscience behind Savior Brand Co. ‘Our brand name is an old term referring to ‘a person who helps people achieve salvation or saves them from something.’ We work with orphanages and would like to give our customers the opportunity to do the same and be a saviour in your own right, so 10 per cent of all our profits go towards helping orphans in South Africa.’ Savior Brand Co is now working on a range of bags in a similar style to covers, so watch this space. The phone covers are R250 and tablet covers R300-R400. Find out more on the Savior Brand Co Facebook page or email them on firstname.lastname@example.org to place orders. They will also soon be stocked in Holmes Bros stores in Durban, Cape Town and Johannesburg.
