About Us

Designwerkstatt is a young African design label based in Cape Town. We design and manufacture unique gifts and jewelry. We love African design and we have great fun creating new products by combining African prints and minimalistic design.

Our African print animal range is currently the best selling product. We are proudly South African and all our products are manufactured locally.

Our staff is trained in all aspects of the business and we ensure that we keep them skilled on a sustainable level.

We are passionate about design and enjoy the process of creating new products. Our inspiration comes from the design and colours of Africa. We are committed to producing quality designer products from local and sustainable materials, thereby supporting the local economy.
