about the process
What makes it a more sustainable option?
On this journey, I have discovered that the body is a part of our human nature. I believe our body is a divine gift that needs to be kept fit so it doesn't obstruct our spiritual efforts.
I also believe that what you adorn and surround yourself with, is an extension the self - a living manifesto of your experiences, feelings, emotions and wellbeing. And the Mother Earth has everything to do with our mere existence, so why not join in union and contribute to keep the earth fit and healthy whilst appreciating the beauty that lies within it?
With the rise of technology and fast-pace Consumerist Culture we have seen in our lifetime: I believe that Society is ready to embrace ethical and natural alternatives to mass produced products that surround us.
W I L D T H O R N designs came into fruition from my deep rooted desire to arouse the collective and promote ecologically friendly and sustainable living with handmade items that have a flair of expression, touches your wild soul!

Visual Designer & self-taught hempstress
My work aims to reveal a new energy towards the Hemp Industry whilst supporting local businesses. Focusing on the beauty of hemp's raw aesthetics and natures alchemic elements; each item is naturally hand-dyed, a process which allows me to slow down, engage and explore the dyes & the fabric.
Working on my own brand allows me to find my own sense of self-expression, unleashing my creativity by doing what I'm passionate about - working with my hands.
Furthermore, I aim to assist in reducing the negative impact of waste pollution upon the environment by recycling plastic shopping bags to create padding for selected products and aim to utilise every piece of ‘wastage fabric’ when garment panels are cut out!
My collection includes authentic accessories, homedecor items, clothing & apparel made from certified 55% hemp & 45% organic cotton blends, proudly locally sourced from the Hemporium in Cape Town.
