CAPE TOWN - Daily struggles with an ill-fitting swimming cap has led a Cape Town mother to think out of the box.

The saying 'necessity is the mother of invention' proved true, as her unique creation - borne out of frustration - shows.

 

 

Swimma Caps cater for big hair, like creator Numvuyo Treffers' long dreadlocks.

She previously opted not to swim because of her hair.

 

 

The caps come in two sizes: afro regular and afro large, using waterproof silicone material.

Different sizes and colours are being developed, and Treffers says sales are going swimmingly.
