A Social Enterprise facilitating economic empowerment by marketing a range of products made by independent sewing co-ops in the townships.

Township® is a unique social enterprise in the fashion industry creating fair trade clothing and accessories. Township fabrics used for production are inspired by the vibrant culture of Khayelitsha and are made from 100% African non-GM cotton fabric.

The line is designed by Township Founder Nicole-Marie Iresch and produced exclusively by independent women’s cooperatives based in the townships and Cape Flats. Township ® exists to show women all over the world that with a little courage, it is possible to stand up and succeed.

Township Patterns is a member of the World Fair Trade Organization.
