Maxhosa Africa: Xhosa-inspired knitwear

Maxhosa Africa

If you hadn't noticed already, we love brands that celebrate the extraordinary vibrancy of Africa and knitwear brand Maxhosa Africa is definitely one of them!

Founded in 2012 by designer Laduma Ngxokolo, Maxhosa is a South-African knitwear brand that fuses the stunning, traditional Xhosa beadwork patterns, symbolism & colours with modern knitwear.

All the collections, which range from men and women's clothing to home decor, showcase the beauty, culture, language and aspirations of the Xhosa people (one of the most dominant ethnic groups in South Africa).

His designs capture the essence of Xhosa people in a modernised, innovative way and they have made a big impression on the global fashion market.

We love their range and could spend hours pouring over their website, getting inspired! Browse the collections and shop online here.

Laduma Ngxokolo will be speaking alongside Aduna Co-Founder and CEO Andrew Hunt at the Conde Nast International "Nature of Luxury" Conference in Cape Town in April 2019. For more information, click here.
