Afrocentric805 is inspired by my passion for sewing and my love for home. Unique Southern African inspired prints and bespoke designs for fashion and soft furnishings in an ethnic style!
I started this project in in memory of my mum who was a fantastic dressmaker. The work she did for us, growing up in our little house (# 805B/5) back in KweKwe, Zimbabwe and the fact that she left us at a very young age also inspires me to see this project grow into a business I know she would be proud of.
As the name suggest I love everything African and believe there is a lot of design inspiration that can be obtained from the culture and transferred into products that everyone would love no matter where they are from. I love the bold unique prints that ooze with so much attitude and identity that if possible I would like to travel all over Africa to source these.
Together with the experience I have as a qualified Garment Technologist I aim to sell unique products made to a high quality standard. The product range will continue to expand from living room to kitchen, bathroom as well as a few wardrobe essentials.
Sewing is my hobby and I enjoy every single minute I spend on my machine and with a little help from my friends, I wish nothing but success for Afrocentric8-0-5!!!
