Township Patterns is a Fashion Design (Marketing and Distribution) social enterprise. The company only sources its products from small independent textile manufacturing operations based in the Cape Town townships.

Fair Trade registered, it has a very original business model, with a for profit-unit feeding some of the profits into a non-profit entity. The non-profit entity has a mission to provide support for the development of the small workshop suppliers (in the field of cashflow, training, quality control, logistics, advice, etc ...).

Christophe Labesse, director and founder of Township Patterns, was a senior executive at Xerox international before starting this social business journey. He runs Township Patterns with very strong business acumen.
