Social Fabric

Mohair is a natural fibre with unique lustre and a fine texture that comes from the hair of the Angora goat. South Africa produces around 60% of the world’s mohair. Most of it leaves the country in “raw” form, i.e. fleece or tops. In other words, the designing and making of “finished” products – those found in shops – happens elsewhere in the world. The Social Fabric project tries to promote greater South African design using South African textiles such as mohair in order to build the industry - and thus jobs - based on the development of an innovation pipeline.
