About Us

Africa Made Only (AMO) was founded in 2018, born of the belief that everything that can be made here should be made here. Every piece we make is sewn by talented local tailors and seamstresses in South Africa and made from ethically sourced fabrics, from all corners of Africa - including Ghana, Ivory Coast, South Africa, Mali, Benin, Congo, Nigeria and Kenya.

Once we’ve found the finest threads, we ship them down to Cape Town, where we partner with local master tailors and seamstresses who nip and tuck them into shape. Our embroidery specialists then delicately apply the AMO logo and our locally printed label and branding is applied. We then deliver a bespoke AMO product to your door via our logistics partner UAfrica.  

But, it doesn’t end there, all of our current online offerings can be customised, using one of 65 prints which are neatly packaged in our lookbook available on request. Feel free to click Contact Us and we can collaborate to make something bespoke just for you.

Lastly, if you are a tailor, seamstress, creator or a keen entrepreneur based in South Africa and you would like to partner with a brand that believes in enabling local talent to create great Africa Made Only products. Get in touch with us at partnerships@africamadeonly.com. Please note we aim to develop healthy win - win partnerships not exploitative employment. If these values speak to your heart we hope to hear from you soon as we aim to launch our online marketplace for Africa Made Only products and services.
