Wanida Keeping (Yui) | Wanida Boutique
“Before moving to Cape Town, I lived in Bangkok. A city where pollution and clothingwaste are commonplace, thanks to the mass production of fast fashion in Thailand. When Imoved to the Mother City in 2016, I was taken by this beautiful city full of fresh air and thewonders of mother nature. It hit me how lucky I am to enjoy her natural wonders – and howimportant it is for me to play my part in ensuring that our natural world is protected.Attending a Twyg magazine event a few years ago, I really began to understand theimportance of sustainability. It struck me that at home in Bangkok, there’s such an overabundance of unsustainable clothing, but here in South Africa, you find so many localdesigners each championing sustainability. It’s incredibly inspiring. So much so, that when Istarted my brand in 2019, my primary thought was: how do I not contribute to fashion’s overwaste? Especially since my designs use a lot of fabric, I try to use 100% cotton as much as Ican find fabrics here from local supply and produce low runs or make-to-order, to preventdeadstock. My customers really appreciate what the brand stands for. I keep it small so that itstays special – and sustainable, of course!” –
The tees are made locally in Cape Town using a sustainable DTF printing system made to sustain the colour and quality to last a lifetime. Each T-shirt is hand printed in-house by myself, promoting the concept of the direct link from designer to customer.
