Tombazan .....Huh?

The name "Tombazan " comes from the word “Amantombazana” is a Zulu word for "an unmarried girl or young maiden” (or sometimes "a wench"!) because most of my sewing projects are for young women. It reflects my South African heritage and love for Zululand where I grew up. It is said "toh-ma-zan". 
I am more of an "umfazi" (older mature married woman).
Hamba kahle! (Zulu for goodbye meaning literally "Go well")
