More and more South Africans are bringing out products that are giving the international market a run for their money.
Why buy imported goods when we can support local businesses? Earlier this month, a social media page, @hobo_group, shared the inspiring story of two local entrepreneurs - Hacjivah Dayimani and Bheka Dlamini.
Dayimani and Dlamini are the co-founders of a premium sneaker brand, Hibacci. However, they did not start the business in a fancy building in a posh area.
The entrepreneurs started by selling the kicks from their garage in Midrand and now ship nationally.

The post was captioned:
"Meet two youngsters, Hacjivah Dayimani and Bheka Dlamini, founders of a new black-owned premium sneaker brand, Hibacci.
"Started from their garage in Midrand to the world. The shoes retail from as little as R1 500 to R1 999, shipping nationally."
Take a look at the post below:
South Africans were inspired by the two men's hustle and their amazing product.
Twitter user, @leratleem, commented:
"I still have a problem with South Africans who show off Louis Vuitton, these are brands we need to show off and support our proudly South African brands. Congratulations are in order."
Eagle-eyed social media users saw that one of the founders is none other than Lions rugby player Hacjivah Dayimani.
Bhodlinja Bhogrom, who goes by the Twitter handle @GobingcakaRhaso, commented:
"That's Dayimani the Lions rugby player mos."
