A fresh innovative approach to heritage and culture sewn up in textiles

Egoli Textiles manufactures high-quality proudly South African textile designs, African fashion, and accessories inspired by traditional African textile techniques.

They work under ethical trade conditions using eco-friendly dyes, inks and natural fabrics for our custom designed fabrics.

Egoli Textile Designs incorporates commercial fabrics into their fashion range. This is to ensure that they also serve a customer base that is looking for affordability while celebrating African fashion.

The business is one of 20 nominees listed for the 702 Small Business Awards.

Founder, Sino Xaba says she was inspired to create a range of textiles influenced by South African heritage and culture.

I thought there was a gap in the market for textiles that showcase our diverse heritage specifically indigenous designs.

She says there is a shortage of skills in terms of textile designs. Xaba offers workshops and training in textile design.

I am really looking forward to taking this forward and having partners on board who can help us out with design software as well as computers because the learners that I train do not have access to computers.....
