Tyla Stallbom is a student of Industrial Design enrolled at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology. Currently working towards her BTech Industrial Design degree, Stallbom wants to use the momentum she’s generated academically to start her own product design company in the real world.
Her most successful project, a range of six accessories for camera-users called the Lunar Strap, puts emphasis on local textile production and has gained interest from multiple retailers. It is the only product that she’s taken to the market, though she plans to develop her other creations to the same level and beyond. Now, Stallbom is focusing on the networking side of her ambitions and looking for the right contacts to elevate her business.
