We believe that one of the greatest forms of sustainability must be to give back to our community, to keep the industry and skills within it alive and our economy thriving. We also believe that fewer products, made better, can be treasured for a long time. We aim to therefore create well-made and beautiful everyday, utility product that our customers will be able to use and love for a long time. Each of our pieces are made by women in the Flats Communities of Cape Town who are highly skilled and experienced machinists, tailors and garment analysts. They are not mass produced in factories, but made in small batches to reduce waste. The time it takes from design to production is longer and slowly and individually crafted with acute attention to detail.
Designing for a longer life and advancing the use of responsible and ethically produced materials are some of the main priorities in reducing our footprint. Sustainably sourced materials are those that naturally have a lighter imprint on the environment, such as linen, or materials that are consciously produced in a more ethical or responsible manner.

Our Suppliers consist of a foundation of strong relationships who develop quality fabric from skilled people across Cape Town and in other parts of Southern Africa. Our products have been designed around working with our suppliers and fabrics, Our suppliers are also people who have years of experience in delivering quality and long lasting fabrics and have therefore had a huge impact on our designs and what our brand stands for. We allow the material from our suppliers to dictate the form, function and design of product, be it a garment, detail, component or an accessory. It is an important influence on the way we design our products.
Our goal is to develop cleaner methods from all our suppliers for spinning, weaving, dyeing, sewing, and all the other stages of the production process thereby working with suppliers who are also keen on achieving this in the coming years to help build a better, cleaner earth.
