OUR FOUNDATION

"When I was first invited to visit the homes of a group of women in Khayelitsha in 1992, I encountered an abundance of patterns, colours and textures and was struck by the ingenuity, creativity and flair of the township life. I discovered a beauty, a style and a spirit that I had never seen before. From that moment, I nursed a desire to express and translate the originality and style of township homes into unique prints. I also recognized the energy and potential of these women and felt compelled to help them to find meaninful opportunities that would convey their heroic spirit and creativity" - Township Founder, Nicole-Marie Iresch

OUR VISION
