After being the senior Girlswear designer at one of South Africa’s biggest kids brands, it was time to take the leap and start my own brand! I felt I needed more flexibility with my 2 sons and still to this day, it’s still the best decision I have made! Eco-Punk Kid’s Clothing was born in 2010.
Our mission is to make high quality garments for your children, we believe that clothing should last and be handed down. Our fabrics are natural, and breathable and children feel the difference between synthetic (polyester, acrylic, nylon etc) and natural fabrics like cotton and viscose.
eco is for
natural fabrics that are breathable and comfortable.
punk is for
being an eco warrior, consciously being aware of HOW we manufacture. Our entire ranges are made in Cape Town, South Africa, as well as all printing and embroideries.
We strongly believe in job creation, empowerment and upliftment.
In September 2019 I launched a Ladies and Men’s range: Ecopunk Athleisure & Yogawear. Keeping the same methodology and ethos as the kids range: natural fabrics, comfortable, practical, long lasting and clothing that can cross over as casual and active wear.
ATHLEISURE is clothing designed for yoga and other athletic activities, which is also worn in other settings such as the workplace, nature, casual and social occasions.
I LOVE clothing, I see it as an artform! Every item is a little miracle, going from design, patternmaking, grading, marker-making, laying up of fabric, cutting, sew-barring, embroidery, printing, sewing, finishing and ironing and packing.
Thank you for reading my story, and thank you for the support and positive feedback over the last 10 years, it keeps me going : )
