Nelson Mandela-Inspired Clothing Line 46664 to Hit US Stores


From Loop 21-Clothing line expected to arrive by holiday season.

Nelson Mandela is the latest global icon to have a clothing line designed in his honor.

In 2011, the Nelson Mandela Foundation started a clothing line named “46664” which is also the number that Mandela wore during his 18-year prison sentence. Now, one year later the foundation has entered into an agreement with Dallas-based B US Inc. to bring the line to the United States and Canada.

The line is known for using bright colors, bold prints, authentic African “shweshwe-print shirts” and African color schemes.
